Keto Beef Curry
Creamy and flavorsome beef curry Panang style.

The distinct flavor of the Panang beef curry is thanks to a mixture of lemongrass, kaffir lime, and fish sauce. 

For anyone who hasn’t used shrimp paste before; the smell is quite intense. I suggest opening a window when cooking with this glorious fermented flavor.
