Tamarind Beef (Daging Asam) Recipe

Tamarind Beef (Daging Asam) Recipe

Ingredients :

625g (1 1/4 lb) chuck, round or topside steak

6 dried chilies, soaked

10 shallots, chopped

2.5cm (1 inch) piece fresh ginger

4 candlenuts

1 tsp dried shrimp paste

1/2 tsp turmeric powder

2 tbsp oil

3 cups water

2 tbsp tamarind



1 fresh red chili, finely sliced

1 green chili, finely sliced

Method :

Cut beef into small pieces. Chop or mince dried chilies, shallots and ginger and grind to a paste with candlenuts, dried shrimp paste and turmeric.

Heat oil in a large pan and fry seasonings for 4 minutes, stirring constantly. Put in beef and turn several times to thoroughly coat meat pieces with the seasonings. Fry until well browned. Soak tamarind in water. Squeeze and strain into meat. Bring to the boil, then add sugar and salt to taste. Turn heat down and simmer till beef is very tender and gravy slightly reduced.

Remove beef and arrange on a serving dish. Pour on a little of the sauce. Garnish with sliced red and green chilies. Serve the meat without sauce if it is to accompany other sauced dishes.
