Soto Padang



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)

SOTO PADANG

Ingredients :

400 gram beef
2000 ml water
1 tsp salt
5 kaffir lime leave
2 lemongrass
2 salam leaves
1 1/2 cm ginger
1 cm galangal
1/2 nutmeg, 5 cloves, 5 cm cinamon
spring onion
glass 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
Method :
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'

Enjoy...
