Panang Curry with Beef
This dish is was prepared for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was "spicy food". I am just going to start out this post by saying that when my friends and I saw this theme, we laughed. Almost all of our food is spicy... case in point:http://www.cucumbertown.com/a-blood-recipe-dish. Also, this dish is probably my favourite Thai dish. I remember my mom ordering this at my first Thai restaurant when I was about 8 and feel in love then and never stopped. Because of this, I have never tried making it because I thought it was overly complicated and I was very wrong. That being said, this dish had a decent amount heat but it could have used more. The only reason I did not make it hotter is out of respect for a friend who was over when I made this that can not take heat like a few of us. Given that, the left overs, I cheated and added a thing of chili paste that I got from a Thai restaurant that I went to a week prior.
