Varity of eggplants and beef in green curry


This fantastic Thai green curry recipe features tender, thinly-sliced pieces of beef simmered together with Varity of eggplants and red pepper (green pepper can be added too).  This curry is very sumptuous - wonderful on a chilly night! The homemade green curry paste is what makes this dish sing, so don't be tempted to substitute the store-bought variety, especially when it's so easy to make from scratch, and so very flavorful and fresh-tasting. Top the curry with fresh basil and coriander, and then sit back and savor the wonderful Thai flavors and aroma this dish brings. Enjoy!  (Intro: Darlene Schmidt)
