Soto Padang/Padang Style Beef Soup
I cooked Soto again, this time Padang style to participate Masak Bareng (cooking together) arranged by Shinta, Deetha and Ayin. My kids said that they still prefer Soto Bangkalan than this :D
750 g beef
2 litre water
1 stalk lemon grass
3 star anise
5 lime leaves
3 cm galangal, 3 cm ginger
1 teaspoon white pepper powder
1 teaspoon sugar
salt to taste
4 tablespoon cooking oil, 1 tablespoon Blueband margarine
spice to grind: 10 small red onion or 6 shallots, 5 cloves garlic, 1 tbsp coriander, 3 cm turmeric
condiments: celery, vermicelli, perkedel kentang/fried potato cake, sambal, krupuk, lime.
directions: saute spice paste until fragrant. Pour into water and other spices until boil. Add beef, seasoning with pepper, sugar and salt. Keep it simmering until the beef is tender. Take out beef, then cut into slices and fry with small amount of cooking oil until the colour of beef changed into brown. Serve hot with vermicelly, perkedel kentang, krupuk, lime, chopped celery, sambal.
