Seasoned Fried Beef Slices Recipe – Resep Lapis Manado

As the Indonesian name of this dish implies, it comes from Manado, in Northern Sulawesi.

Ingredients :

  • 11/2 lbs (700 g) sirloin beef
  • 3 cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg or ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups (500 ml) water
  • Oil, for deep-frying

Spice Paste

  • 6–8 red finger-length chilies, deseeded
  • 1 in (21/2 cm) fresh kencur root, peeled and sliced
  • 1 in (21/2 cm) fresh turmeric, peeled and sliced, or 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1 in (21/2 cm) fresh ginger, peeled and sliced
  • 2 teaspoons coriander seeds, or 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon ground white pepper

Method :

  1. Prepare the Spice Paste by grinding all the ingredients to a smooth paste in a mortar or blender, adding a little water if necessary to keep the mixture turning.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a wok over medium heat and stir-fry the Spice Paste until fragrant, 3 to 5 minutes. Add the beef, cloves, nutmeg, salt and water and bring to a boil, then simmer uncovered for 3 to 5 minutes, until the beef is half cooked. Remove the beef from the pan and continue to simmer the stock for 5 more minutes until it thickens, then turn off the heat. Slice the beef into thin strips.
  3. Heat the oil in a wok over high heat until hot. Deep-fry the beef strips for 2 to 3 minutes until browned and cooked. Remove from the hot oil and drain on paper towels. Arrange the beef on a serving platter and pour the gravy over it. Serve immediately.
