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.
