A rich, flavoursome curry that requires minimal effort. We've used a pre-prepared tamarind curry base here, because often there isn't the time to blend your own spice mix, and amped it up with rich coconut milk and fragrant lime leaves. Just leave to slowly simmer in the oven until the meat melts apart and the sauce is thick and creamy.

Here's how you do it
Preheat the oven to 160℃.
Heat a glug of oil in an oven-proof dish on the hob. Season the beef with salt and brown it in batches.
Remove the beef and wash out the pan if there are burnt bits, then add a little more oil and fry the ginger, garlic and chilli for 1 minute.
Return the beef to the casserole, and add the tamarind curry base, coconut milk and lime leaves. Season with salt and pepper, then put the lid on and bake in the oven for 2.5-3 hours, until the beef falls apart and the sauce is rich and creamy.
