Beef & Vegetable Korma


Serves = 10

  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

  • 1kg gravy beef/chuck steak, cut into 2.5cm cubes, trim and discard fat

  • 1 large brown onion, chopped
  • ½ cup korma curry paste
  • 500g potatoes, cut into 2cm cubes
  • ½ cauliflower (approx. 300g), cut into small florets
  • 2 carrots, peeled and sliced into rounds
  • 2 x 400g can diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup reduced salt vegetable stock
  • 1 cup water

  • 1 ½ cup frozen peas,
  • 7.5 cups cooked brown rice to serve (use 3.75 cup uncooked rice)

It’s this easy

  • Heat 2 tsp oil in a large frying pan, add half of the beef and cook for a few minutes or until browned on the outsider. Transfer to a plate. Repeat with remaining oil and beef.
  • Add all other ingredients to the slow cooker except the peas. Mix everything well and then add the seared beef.
  • Cover with a lid and turn the cooker to high for 30 mins, then low for 7.5 hours, stirring halfway through the cooking.
  • Add the peas to the slow cooker 10-20 minutes before serving (or until cooked). Serve with ¾ cup cooked brown rice.


  • Serve with a dollop of natural yoghurt and a sprinkle of chopped coriander.
  • To add more flavour, sauté the onion with the korma paste before adding to the slow cooker.
  • To save time you can put the raw beef in the slow cooker, however the flavour and texture of the end product will be different.

What is healthy eating?

Eating healthy is making sure you enjoy a wide variety of foods from each of the five major food groups daily, in the amounts recommended. The five major food groups as recommended by the Australian Guide to Healthy Eating are:

  1. vegetables and legumes/bean
  2. fruit
  3. lean meats and poultry, fish, eggs, tofu, nuts and seeds, legumes/beans
  4. grain (cereal) foods, mostly wholegrain and/or high cereal fibre varieties
  5. milk, yoghurt, cheese and/or alternatives, mostly reduced fat.

Foods are grouped together because they provide similar amounts of key nutrients and eating a variety of foods from the list above helps to promote good health and reduce the risk of disease.

How do I improve my diet?

If you want to improve your diet you have come to the right place. By completing the Healthy Eating Quiz you’ll receive instant personalised feedback and a report on your diet quality to highlight any areas where you can improve your overall eating habits.

Is my diet healthy?

Dietary habits are different between people. Some people choose to follow a particular diet (i.e., Keto diet or vegan diet) while some have to make changes due to certain food restrictions or health conditions. If you want to know if what you usually eat is healthy, then do the Healthy Eating Quiz today to give you the answers in less than 10 minutes.

Why is healthy eating important?

Your HEQ score and personalised feedback report is based on the frequency and variety of healthy core foods you usually eat. This is important because no single food contains all the nutrients we need to stay healthy. Some foods are higher in nutrients than others and people who have a lot of variety in the foods they eat are more likely to be healthy and to stay healthy. In other words, if you can eat a large variety of vegetables as opposed to only 2-3 types of vegetables, the benefits are much greater. This type of diet also helps you to feel better, think better and perform better during your usual daily activities.
