December 'Masak Bareng YUk ' event is Soto Padang.
I don't remember when was the last time I have this menu, maybe since 1993 when I visited Bukit Tinggi. It's just I prefer Soto ayam or Soto Lamongan better than this.
Actually I am not sure if this is the correct soto Padang. But I got the recipe from "Seri Masak Femina PRIMARASA" so I am a bit confident to post this.
Here is the recipe (I copied from the book)
400 gram beef
2000 ml water
1 tsp salt
5 kaffir lime leave
2 salam leaves
1 1/2 cm ginger
1 cm galangal
1/2 nutmeg, 5 cloves, 5 cm cinamon
spring onionglass noodles (I don't use it)
Potatoes - boiled and dice
fried shallot, and shrimp crackers
Ground spices : 10 shallot, 4 garlic, 2 chilies, 1 cm turmeric, salt and pepper to taste
Boil beef with salt, kaffir lime leaves, lemongrass, salam leavs, ginger, galangal, nutmeg, cloves, and cinamon until tender.
Slice the beef thinly and fried until crispy ( I cheated --- I used ready made crispy beff from Pelita Nasi Padang)
Fry the ground spice until fragrant and add to the stock.
Add spring onion and serve hot.
I serve it with rice cube and this 'kampung crackers' since I can not find the 'kerupuk merah'
