  1. Remove any excess fat from beef and chop into large, even cubes (approx. 3cm x 3cm). In a very hot pan, which has been lightly sprayed with cooking oil, quickly sear the outside of the beef cubes in small batches. Avoid cooking the beef all the way through, then add to slow cooker.
  2. Add the brown onions to the slow cooker.
  3. In a large jug combine curry paste, coconut milk, chicken stock, lime juice, fish sauce and brown sugar. Add to slow cooker and cook for approximately 7 – 7 ½ hours.
  4. With 2 hours cooking time remaining, add the potatoes to the slow cooker.
  5. With 1 hour cooking time remaining, add the capsicum and chilli to the slow cooker.
  6. Before serving, add 2 tablespoons cornflour to some water and stir through to thicken the sauce.
  7. Serve over Jasmine Rice and add some cashews and chopped fresh coriander.
