Coconut braised round steaks

This recipe is good for any cut of meat, especially round steaks or chuck roasts that need a little gentler cook, but a simple recipe to bring out flavors.



2-3 lbs round steaks or roast of your choice

2 tbsp. coconut oil

3 cloves garlic minced

2 red chilies minced

3 tsp minced ginger

1 can coconut milk

2 tsp lemon juice

Fresh basil, limes for garnish



Salt and pepper round steaks. Cut into roughly one inch cubes.


In a heavy-bottomed pan, heat two tablespoons coconut oil. Sauté the garlic, ginger and chili for one minute. Add beef. Keep heat medium-high to brown.


Once browned, add coconut milk and lemon juice and seal with a tight fitting lid. Reduce heat to low. Simmer 1 to 2 hours or until beef is tender.


Either reduce liquid for a stir fry or serve as a stew. Adjust seasonings to taste. Garnish with lime juice and fresh basil.
