I love beef and I'm in on any dishes featuring beef. Beef curry, beef rendang, beef stew, beef soup, beef noodles, you name it, I want it.
This is another dish inspired by Kak Azie's recipe. I bought quite a bit of beef from Jaya Grocer when I saw gorgeous fresh beef on the shelves.
Yeah, that's me hoarding again but I assure you that these beefy goodness will not go to waste and I have many beef recipes to try.
I defrosted a packet of sliced beef which was labelled as "chuck tender". The 440g packet cost me RM20+. As far as I know, "chuck" is the tough cut so how does "chuck tender" figure?
Not taking any chances, I pounded the 4 slices of beef with my meat hammer to tenderize. Then I sliced the meat into bite sized pieces and marinated the beef overnight with fresh pounded turmeric, turmeric powder and salt. Very simple.
To cook, all I did was heat up some oil, fry some sliced garlic and added the beef into the hot oil. Once the meat changed color, I added some water to let simmer until tender. Once the water is almost dry, sliced onions and long beans are added and stir fried until the longs beans are tender crisp.
I ate the beef with Nasi Goreng Kerabu. Heavenly, I tell you! Such a simple dish and yet so big on flavors.
