Krengsengan Daging, Stewed Beef

Krengsengan Daging Recipe (Eastern Javanese Stewed Beef)


500 gr boneless beef, sliced
2 tbsp Indonesian sweet soy sauce ( I’d rather use Cap Bango than ABC, but since I can not find Cap Bango for purchase in Winnipeg, I use ABC instead)
1 tbsp shrimp paste (it’s different with dried shrimp paste or terasi)
3 tbsp oil to saute
300 ml water
3 red chilli peppers, discard the seed, finely sliced

6 shallots
3 cloves garlic
6 bird’s eye chilies (I added sambal oelek instead)
1 tsp ground white pepper
1 large tomato
sat as desired

1. Marinate meat with sweet soy sauce and petis udang for 15 – 30 minutes.
2. Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat, add pureed mixture, saute until fragrant. Add meat, stir thru until the meat stiff and add water. Cover the skillet with lid and cook in medium heat, stir occasionally until the meats are tender and the water almost evaporates.
3. Uncover the skillet, keep stirring until the oil of meats come out.
4. Add red chilli peppers, stir until soft. Remove from heat and serve.

PS: Use less red chillies and bird chillies, if you don’t like hot taste.
Tips: Beat the meat with a meat mallet before slicing/cutting to tenderize
