Jintan Beef

This spicy beef dish cooked in a Malay traditional style is simply irresistable. Make sure beef is fresh to obtain delicious result.

Although I can very well cook this myself, I still feel that my mum's cooking is always a lot better. She knows that I like this dish, so this is a sure menu when I visit my kampung.

500g Beef - sliced to small pieces
few tbsp Cooking Oil
5-6 Shallots*
2 cloves Garlic*
1½" Ginger*
2 tbsp Black Pepper Corns*
2 tbsp Fennel seeds (Jintan Manis)* (* blended finely with some water)
½ cup Water
1 tbs Tamarind juice
1 Big Onion - sliced ring shape
2 Green Chillies - sliced thick
2 Tomato - cubed
Salt & MSG (optional)

1. Heat up oil & fry blended ingredients until fragrant.
Add in beef, water, salt & msg and pressure until beef is tender.
(If you do not have a pressure pot, add in extra water & boil until beef is tender & gravy is dried up).
Add in tamarind juice, onion rings, green chillies & tomato.
Stir for few minutes & dish up.

2. Serve with rice.
