Red Curry with Chicken and Baby Corn

This is my take on a creamy coconut Thai curry chicken. 
I used brown sugar instead of rock sugar and the premade Thai red curry paste. My main picture doesn’t include the turn Thai basil and bean sprouts, but I did enjoy it with some of those. I’ve also seen other types of vegetables in curry but these are what I had on hand.

  • 3-4 boneless, skinless chicken thighs, sliced
  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 3 Tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 Tablespoon red Thai curry paste
  • 1 can baby corn
  • 1 Tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon fish sauce


  1. Prepare chicken by removing excess fat and slicing into strips.
  2. To a large, heated saucepan, add the coconut milk, coconut oil, and curry paste. Heat through and break paste down in the liquid.
  3. Add chicken, stir, and let cook.
  4. Add baby corn, sugar, and fish sauce.
  5. Taste and add more fish sauce if you’d prefer it saltier. One Tablespoon was enough for me.
  6. Enjoy!

Beef Curry with mixed Vegetables


Ground beef was on sale at Safeway for $2.50/lb. I got about 12 lbs. I like to take advantage of the sales, pack it into one-pound portions , and freeze them. On this day, I made some curry with vegetables using ground beef as the protein. I had it with a side of cauliflower rice to try and keep it low carb. Here’s the recipe.


  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced 
  • 2 inches ginger, minced 
  • 2 T Worcestershire sauce 
  • 2 T ketchup 
  • 1 bag frozen mixed vegetables 
  • 2 t chicken bouillon 
  • 3 cups water
  • 3 blocks curry flavor
  1. Brown the ground beef.
  2. Prepare the onions, garlic, and ginger (chop, mince).
  3. Once beef is browned, add onions, garlic, ginger, Worcestershire sauce, and ketchup. Stir and cook until onions are translucent.
  4. Add frozen mixed vegetables, bouillon, water, and curry blocks. Dissolve blocks and bring to a simmer  to make ensure the frozen veggies have heated through.
  5. Serve and enjoy!
