Our family like to buy this menu from a food counter at Asian supermarket in town. One of these days I decided to prepare it myself. I browsed around the recipe from the internet, mostly they used slow cooker to cook the stew. Since I do not have a slow cooker, I then came up with my own recipe.
- 1kg of beef
- 4 potato, peel n cut into small chunk, deep fry until half cooked
- 150gr of mini carrot
- 3Tbsp of sesame oil
- 4Tbsp of soy sauce
- 4Tbsp of sweet cooking wine
- 6 cloves of garlic, crack it with pestle
- 1 star arnise
- 1tsp of Chinese five spices powder
In a pot saute garlic with sesame oil until fragrant and then brown the meat. Add all of the seasoning, mix well and bring to boil. Continue to cook until the meat tender, do not forget to cover the pot with the lid. Add carrot and cook for 3minutes. At last add the fried potato and continue to cook for another 2minutes.
