This curry of slow-cooked, tender beef started off as a Neil Perry recipe and has a wonderfully deep, warm flavour from the spices in its base paste (cinnamon and star anise alongside the usual Thai suspects like lemongrass, galangal, garlic and shrimp paste). We fry this curry paste until aromatic, stir through diced beef shin and coconut milk, then braise for hours  till it's meltingly soft before finishing the curry with bamboo shoots, fish sauce, ground peanuts and plenty of Thai basil.
