  22. This is a milder curry paste then the other Thai curries, using 1 tablespoon should be enough and if you add some hot peppers as well. At around 2 ½ hours the meat is tender, but at 3 hours more so… depending on the cut of meat used. Finally temperatures for different Slow Cookers will vary, so cook accordingly for a nice meal.
