Leftover Roast Beef Curry with a touch of coconut milk, a delicious curry recipe that is ready in about 30 minutes. It's easy to make, it's full of flavour, and it goes down well with the whole family. As good as a classic beef recipe, but a lot quicker. My beef curry is such a treat any day of the year.
