This recipe is one from a fellow forumite "Jayco Gypsy"
Thanks Cathy

This is one of my favorite recipes. I have shared this elsewhere and thought some may enjoy it.
It can be cooked in a camp oven, pressure cooker, microwave or stovetop.
I haven’t tried this in a dreampot but I think it would be suitable.
Serve with rice, pappadums veggies of choice. Makes great pies if there is any left overs.
(Cathy suggests trying it in a Dream Pot - if you do remember to put about 1/4 less liquid as the evaporation process doesn't occur in a Dream Pot or other thermal cooker)

600grm Shin beef (I use gravy beef)
1 can coconut cream 425ml
1 large onion sliced
1 teaspoon sugar
1 ½ teaspoons salt optional
2 teaspoons lengkuas powder (this is commonly known as galangal redily available at asian shops, I dry it out in the oven and it lasts longer)2 teaspoons ground ginger
½ teaspoon ground cumin
4 cloves crushed garlic
5 dried chillies or powder to taste (I use ½ teaspoon chilli powder)
1 tablespoon ground coriander
2 tablespoons lemongrass (substitute 2 tablespoons lemon pepper)
Stock cube optional, add water if it becomes a little dry during cooking.
Combine all ingredients in a saucepan bring to boil. #
Reduce to simmer until cooked.
Make the day before for full flavour.
(If cooking in the dream pot follow directionsto # and then boil for about 5 minutes and transfer to the thermal cooker for about 3 hours.)
