Bonesteak - Ely's Style
This recipe comes from my mak. Being away from home, I was longing for Bonesteak, Beach Road (Singapore) Style. So here it is:
2-3 lbs of beef/lamb
1 medium can Tomato Puree
2 tbsp chili powder
1 tbsp Rempah Sup (Powdered soup mixture)
1 tbsp kicap manis (sweet soya sauce)
1 inch ginger and 8 garlic (blended together)
Cinnamon stick, star anis, cardamom and clover
2-3 potatoes, cut into 8 pieces
cabbage, shredded if you'd like
1 onion, diced
1/2 can peas
sugar and salt to taste
Put Ingredient A into a pot and put on slow heat. Add some water, enough to boil/stew the meet. It is okay if you put in too much water as it will eventually evaporate. Let is stew for at least 1.5 hours, stirring the bottom intermitently.
As the mixture begins to slightly thicken, add in ingredient B and continue to boil until it really thickens.
Voila! Easy peasy!
Dont forget the French Baguette to 'spoon out' the yummy juice!
