How To Make Instant Pot Thai Green Curry With Beef
Thai green curry is usually made with chicken in a creamy coconut milk broth and surrounded with green chilies.
This recipe is super-simple and has all the same amazing flavors. Lime, coriander, garlic, and onion all simmer in a thick coconut milk broth. Instead of chicken, I made mine with tender and juicy strips of steak.
While most Thai Green Beef Curry recipes tend to have a strong kick of spice, I‘ve held back on certain ingredients to keep it on the milder side.

Easy Green Curry With Beef
Zip on down to the printable recipe card a little further below. First, I have some extra tips that I think will answer a few of your questions.
Where do you buy the ingredients?
I shopped at our local Asian market for most of these ingredients. They are easy to find there. You might be able to find the ingredients at your local grocery store too.
What kind of coconut milk is best for Thai curry?
Whenever you make Thai curry, you should use canned coconut milk, not the kind that is in the carton in the refrigerated section. Canned coconut milk is thicker and creamier.

It’s been soong since I had beef. Making Thai green curry beef your style this weekend. 🙂
I seriously need to give it a try! Looks really delish!
Just made this last night, tripled the recipe. It was fantastic. Used 3 pounds of cubed stew beef (cooked in batches), and one 4-ounce can of green curry paste (equiv to approx 7 Tbsps). The sauce was fantastic, in the future if I have time, I may even strain out the beef and veggies after cooking, and then reduce down the sauce to make it thicker and to have more concentrated flavor. If anyone has any suggestions on how to cook down the sauce faster, please do share!
I am so happy you enjoyed the recipe! The flavor-profiles in this dish are so great! I hope it becomes a repeat recipe in your household.
