masak asam pedas daging

Here's another classic dish from my hometown
where beef replaces fish in this exotic masak asam pedas
another favorite loved by many :)

Let's get started:

marinate 250g-300g beef in 1" grated ginger and 3 grated garlic for 5 mins

put it in a non-stick pot and pour enough water to cover the beef and boil until the meat is cooked

meanwhile pound 5 shallots + 1" galangal + 1/2" fresh turmeric in a mortar until fine

on another stove, heat 3 Tabsp cooking oil in a medium pot over medium fire

toss in 1 crushed lemongrass followed by all the pounded ingredients and sautee till fragrant

add in 3 teasp chilli paste and 1 teasp salt..mix well and keep frying the chilli until it is cooked and crispy

add in the cooked beef together with its stock + 1/2 teasp of "kerisik" (desiccated coconut) + 1 sliced candlenut and allow to simmer until the gravy thickens

tear up 1 kaffir leaf and toss it inside the gravy and mix well

off the fire

let the beef rest for 5 mins before serving

Bon appetit!

a word on the beef
I'm cooking the beef shin ie. the muscle which is the toughest part of the beef
It requires a long time to cook so I use the pressure cooker instead
within 30 mins it is done and the meat was so tender and silky
I transfer the meat into the other pot when the chilli paste is cooked
