Easy slow cooker beef curry (Slimming World friendly)

This is an amazingly easy dinner you just throw in all in the slow cooker and when you come home from work ta-dah!! It's all ready for you : )

Slow cooker beef curry

2 lb lean diced beef
2 large onions (sliced)
1/2  tsp chili flakes (or fresh chopped chili if you prefer)
1 can chopped tomatoes
2 tbsp tomato puree
2 tsp ground cumin
2 tsp ground coriander
2 tsp turmeric 
3 cloves garlic (crushed)
thumb sized piece of fresh ginger (grated )
(or I use frozen garlic and ginger paste )
1/2 pt beef stock (from a cube is fine) 
salt to taste 

Put everything in the slow cooker stir well and cook on low for 6-8 hours . When you get home take off the lid and turn it up to high for the last hour so the sauce can thicken and reduce . Taste for seasoning in case it needs a little salt.

  1. Can you add fat free natural yoghurt to this to help thicken

    1. Would you add the yoghurt when you remove the lid for the last hour?

  2. Probably right at the end would be best in the last five minutes. I don't find it's needed and just leaving the lid off the last hour thickens it enough but if you want to please do add it but at the end so it doesn't curdle the sauce.

  5. Do you have to seal the meat before

    1. I don't but you can if you want to
