For The Seven Pot Gochujang Chicken

  5. Stir in the tomato paste and cook for 1-2 minutes or until softened and lightly toasted. Add about a quarter of the total beef stock, stirring to combine with the tomato paste, and bring the mixture to a boil. Boil for 2-3 minutes or until the veggies are completely softened.

  6. Carefully pour the sauce back into the blender you used for the curry paste and blend until smooth. Pour that mixture back into the skillet and combine with the rest of the beef stock.

  7. Add in the marinated beef as well as any of the marinade and stir to combine. Add the curry leaves, bring the mixture to a simmer over medium heat. Cover with a lid and transfer into the preheated oven. Braise the beef for 2 hours or until the sauce has reduced and the beef is tender.
