Thai Ground Beef

Because Dianthus' Meatballs - SE Asia Style were so darn good, I wanted to try another Thai dish. This time I made Thai ground beef. While the ground beef tasted really good, it was too much work for me to make this again. But I recommend you try it at least once.
Thai Ground Beef
Serves 4
1 T olive oil
2 large shallots, thinly sliced
1 teaspoon minced garlic (bottled minced garlic is preferred here)
1 lb. ground beef
1 tsp. red curry paste
1 cup tomato sauce
1/2 cup light coconut milk
1 T brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp. lime juice
1 T Asian fish sauce
Chopped cilantro
Heat olive oil in a large saute pan over medium-high heat. Add shallots and saute for five minutes. Add garlic, saute 1 minute. Add beef and cook until lightly browned. Stir in curry paste and tomato sauce; cook until half of liquid evaporates. Add milk, sugar, lime juice and fish sauce and cook until slightly thickened. Garnish with cilantro and serve.
