Made this today in my slow cooker with an already spiced corned beef from my local meat market. Used coconut cream concentrate instead of canned coconut milk, beef broth and didn't add the red curry paste. It turned out FANTASTIC. I think the coconut oil really enhances the beef and there is not a distinct coconut taste. You can't ruin anything with coconut!
