Serves 4 - 5 people
Tender meat with a sweet-spicy gravy, addictive!
25g dried chillies
250g large onions
6 garlic cloves
1 stalk lemongrass
500g beef – cut into chunks lengthwise and boiled for 20mins
1 cup beef stock
1 ½ Tbs sugar
4 Tbs sweet soy sauce
½ cup oil
Salt to taste
Thinly slice the partially cooked beef and pound lightly with a pestle to make it tender.
Heat the oil in a wok and fry the beef but don’t allow it to become too crispy.
Remove beef from the wok. Saute the blended lemongrass, garlic, chillis, and onions.
Cook till the oil separates. Add beef stock, sugar, salt, and soy sauce. Bring to a boil.
Add beef and reduce the heat. Allow to simmer and thicken.
