Lately, I noticed myself like to cook a different kind of food from usual (of course only those that are easy to be prepared hehehh). Kinda boring eating the same thing everyday, I guess. Yesterday, I remember a recipe that was given by a friend of mine, Zai. She named the dish as 'Daging Masak Hitam'. I name it 'Daging Masak Hitam ala Zai' since I think it's a unique recipe created by her (her mom actually heheh..). It tastes like 'Rendang Dendeng' a bit (if I'm not wrong about the name). This one is easy to prepare yet tastes yummy! (suites me well hahaa!!)
I surfed the net for the actual recipe but found nothing that is similar to the one that Zai gave me a few years back.I was so engrossed to get the recipe. I rang Zai up in M@laysia huhuuuuu!!! Am I obsessed? Let it be, as long as I got what I want hehehe.. I know I would forget the recipe again. So, I decide to put it my blog. It'll be easier for me to refer to it whenever i need it.
Here it goes
300g beef (slices them small)
1 onion (medium size) - blend
3 cloves garlic - blend
1 inch ginger - blend
1/2 tsp blackpepper powder
2 tsp curry powder
1 tsp vinegar (I used lemon since I've got no vinegar at home)
3 tblsp soy sauce (preferrably a salty one)
3 tblsp kerisik (dried coconut paste??)
2 tblsp oil
Marinate everything except oil with the beef for at least 1 hour. The longer the better. Heat the oil in the frying pan. Put in the marinated beef in the pan. Stir a bit. Then, cover the pan for while. Stir the beef once in a while. While not stirring, remember to put on the pan cover so that the beef is well cooked. It is ready to be served when the beef looks dry (garing) a bit. Not to dry though. Imagine how you cook Rendang. That's how it should look. Happy trying :)
Abang didn't like to eat it with rice since it's tastes like Rendang. So, I ended up eating most of it myself. Anyway, I was the one who crave for it ;).
