Beef Salad

I fell in love with this Beef Salad when my friend brought this over to a party that I organised.  Thinking about this dish, reminded me so much of our stay in Seletar Airbase.  Such idyllic environment that my kids can roam around barefooted.  My neighbours are so friendly that we don't even lock our gates.  One of them, even broke off his lock to open up the side gate that connects our two houses.  Really miss those wonderful time we had there. 

Anyway, whenever I cook this, this beautiful memory floods back.



Findings: This dish is an awesome dish to bring to a party as it allows you to prepare early.  No stress at all.  Yet it tasted soooooo delicious.

Adjust spiciness according to your preference.

What you need:

300g beef (minced or thin sukiyaki)

A.

5 dried chillies (soak till soft and pound into paste) - for spicer taste, add more
2 tbsp turmeric powder
100g Gula Melaka (mashed into paste) - if you prefer sweeter, you can add more.
A pinch of salt
5 shallots (slice very thin/ chop fine)
1 tbsp sesame oil
1 tbsp oil

B.

2 med sized cucumber (cut to thick strips)
3 hard boiled eggs (halved)
2 tomatoes (quartered)

Method

Mix ingredient A together and marinate the beef with it for at least half an hour.

Put the marinated beef together with all the sauce onto a baking tray and bake till cooked.

Decorate plate with cucumber, tomatoes and eggs. Place beef in the centre.
