Javanese Curried Steak

Judith Nolan

This is a great dish, but it is even better if you allow it to cool and then reheat for the next day. Even better flavours. Enjoy!



500gms good stewing steak
1 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon ground or wet ginger
1 teaspoon chilli power or flakes
1 teaspoon nutmeg
good cooking oil, prefer peanut
1/2 pint beef stock
1 large onion chopped
1 clove crushed garlic
2 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon lemon juice
3 bay leaves
1/4 teaspoon salt

In 2 tablspns of oil, fry chopped onion, garlic and the spices, pepper, salt and lemon juice. When the spices are pungent add the diced meat and fry gently for 5 minutes.

Then add the soy sauce, bay leaves, and stock and simmer for about 1 and a 1/2 hours until meat is soft and the liquid thickens. Remove the bay leaves. You can thicken the sauce more if you wish, I use any good quality gravy mix.

Serve with boiled rice and vegetables
