Coconut Beef & Cabbage Curry

Not a particularly authentic curry from anywhere except my pantry, which still contains a decent amount of cabbage, carrots, and onions, and it made use of can of coconut milk that had been hanging around for far too long and needed to go.   I’m a bit impressed at how brown and meaty it looks, since it actually contains quite…
