Coto Makassar

Coto Makassar  is an Indonesian dish originating from Makassar, South Sulawesi
The photo above is my second attempt at coto makassar. I´m so happy my tester at home like it ^^

1 kg beef
100 g red beans
3 l water
4 tablespoons pindakaas (peanut butter)
4 stalks of lemon grass
2 bay leaves
6 cardamoms
3 star anise
4 cloves
3 cm cinnamon
1 tsp ground pepper
5 tablepoons cooking oil
sugar, salt

spices to grind: 100 g shallots, 7 cloves of garlic, 5 candlenuts, 1 tablespoons coriander, 1/2 tsp cumin/caraway seeds

directions: In a large pan, bring beef and water to boil until the meat is tender ( I use a pressure cooker). Sift the water and remove the beef. Cut the meat into slices or small pieces. Heat cooking oil and saute spice paste until fragrant. Return the meat to the pan. Add red beans, spices, spice paste, pindakaas, salt, sugar, pepper. Simmer for 15 minutes and stirring occasionally.
