  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • Vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 small onion, minced
  • 1 tbsp red curry paste, or more to taste
  • 1 cup canned coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup chunky peanut butter
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • Finely chopped fresh mint or Thai basil for garnish
  1. Preheat oven to 375 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Season beef with salt and pepper and mix well. Using wet hands, shape beef into 1-inch meatballs. Place meatballs on prepared rimmed baking sheet. Bake in over for 15 minutes.
  3. In a large frying pan, heat oil over medium heat. Add garlic and onions and cook until fragrant, about 2-3 minutes. Stir in curry paste and cook until it releases its aromas, about 2 minutes. Add coconut milk and peanut butter. Cook and stir to get a smooth, uniform consistency, about 1 minute. 
  4. Add soy sauce and more curry paste, if desired. Add meatballs to pan and simmer over low heat until they are hot. Transfer to a serving dish and sprinkle with mint or Thai basil.
