Once beef is half cooked, add in coconut paste and coconut milk.
Cover with the lid and allow it to simmer in the Quicker Cooker for 30 mins on low-medium heat.
Remove the lid, give it a stir to prevent the beef from getting burnt. Simmer it for another 10 mins till the gravy thickens. It’s ready when the beef is soft and tender. If it’s too hard to bite, add in 100ml water and continue to simmer to your desired doneness.
Season with salt and sugar. Mix it evenly and ready to serve.
