Place all the curry paste ingredients except the garnish into a blender and whizz together until smooth.
Transfer to a large bowl, add the beef and mix to combine with the paste. Cover and marinate in the fridge for 30 minutes or overnight if time allows.
Heat the oil in a large pan or wok, add the beef mixture and cook for 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the coconut milk and bring to the boil, stirring occasionally. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer for 2 hours, or until the meat is tender.
Garnish with sliced chillies, spring onions or extra coriander leaves and serve with plain basmati rice and steamed pak choi or curly kale.
