Sun-Dried Beef and Sour Beef Stew recipes


Recommended Posts

Taken from this ATF thread:


(If anybody could answer about the toms, that would be great!)

Sun-dried Beef

500g beef fying steak (rump/sirloin)

10-12 cloves garlic

1 tablespoon salt

1 tablespoon cracked black pepper

1 cut white vinegar

1/4 cup sugar

• Cut the beef across the grain into paper-thin slices, then narrow strips

• Peel and crush the garlic and mix with the remaining ingredients. Spread over the meat, cover with a double thickness of plastic wrap and set aside for at least 12 hours, turning occasionally

• Remove the meat from the marinade and spread on racks. Place in hot sunlight or in a very low oven to dry until the meat feels firm and dry to the touch. Stores in an airtight container until needed.

• To serve, heat about 1 inch of vegetable oil in a wide skillet. Fry several slices of meat at a time until dark and very crisp. Lift out and rain well. Serve hot or warm.

Sour Beef Stew

500 g braising beef

250 g lean pork, or extra beef

2 tablespoons tamarin pulp

2 kalamansis (Philippine citrus) or 1 lime or lemon

2 medium unripe tomatoes

6 cups rice water (the liquid used for boiling rice, reserved after the rice is cooked and drained)

2 cups shredded cabbage

2 tablespoons fish sauce or light soy sace

cracked black pepper

• Cut the beef and pork into bite-sized cubes

• Place the tamarind and quavered kalamansis or lime in a large saucepan. Add the quartered tomatoes and the rice water and bring to the boil. Simmer for 10 minutes, stirring to dissolve the tamarind. Strain out the tamarind seeds.

• Add the meat, cover and simmer for about 1 1/4 hours until tender.

• Add the cabbage, soy sauce and pepper and simmer again briefly. Remove kalamasis or lime.

Fruit and veg stall would be your best bet, if they didn't have any I'd ask the guy to chuck a few in a box for you tomorrow.

To be honest, looking at that recipe you don't need them as there's only two in there - use two normal tomatoes and an extra lime for to make up the tartness.
