I absolutely love using my slow cooker. It is great for making a wide range of meals, and if you’re a fan of a curry then you’ll LOVE this slow cooker beef keema curry recipe.
This recipe is super simple, and you can use beef or lamb and keep the rest of the ingredients the same if you’d like.
At least once a week I bring out my *multi-cooker a cook up a delicious feast for my family. We love curries especially as the flavours really develop when cooking for hours.
My husband is a real fan of keema curry so I decided to make a slow cooker beef keema as a nice treat for him. If you want to get right down to cooking then skip to the end to find the recipe card.

What to serve with beef keema slow cooker curry:
We personally LOVE to have slow cooker rice and 3 ingredient flatbreads (no yeast required!) with our keema. This curry is so flavoursome that you just don’t need lots of additional flavours alongside it in my opinion.
ALL of the slow cooker recipes on this website have been cooked using a Ninja Foodi OL750UK, or the previous model, but you can use ANY slow cooker, as timings should be very similar.

My husband is a huge lover of a takeaway beef keema curry. It is his favourite type of curry and if he doesn’t have it then he has a naan containing it instead. He was REALLY pleased with this slow cooker keema curry – and we’ve eaten it every few weeks for a couple of years now.
This slow cooker keema curry is convenient, takes under 10 minutes to prepare and it is miles healthier than a takeaway too. We shared a packet of microwave rice with ours, for convenience, and often have a naan too!
This slow cooker beef keema curry wasn’t too saucy at all and was quite authentic. It was ideal for baby led weaning and Daisy absolutely loved it too! Its a great dinner using frozen vegetables as they really take on all the flavours from the herbs and spices.
