  • 1/2 cup (50g) Spring onions, white part, chopped
  • 1 Tbsp. (10g) Ginger, minced
  • 2 pcs. (5g) Chili, chopped
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. (7g) Turmeric powder
  • 1/4 cup (30g) Lemongrass, white part, chopped
  • 1 cup (250ml) Coconut milk
  • 3/4 kilo (750g) Beef, cubed

  • 1 cup (250ml) Coconut milk
  • 4 pcs. (1g) Kaffir lime leaves
  • 1/8 tsp. (0.2g) Lime
  • 2 packs (60g) SARSAYA® Oyster Sauce
  • 1/4 tsp. (1g) Salt


  1. TOAST. Heat a pan and toast rice until browned. Grind the rice in a mortar and pestle or use a food processor for a finer result. Set aside. In the same pan, toast the coconut meat until browned, (10 minutes). Repeat the same process of grinding and set aside.
  2. BLEND. Blend spring onions, ginger, chili, turmeric powder, and lemongrass in a blender or food processor. You may use a mortar and pestle if no blender or food processor is available. Gradually add in 1/4 cup of coconut milk for easier blending until the full 1 cup is put in the mixture.
  3. MARINATE. Marinate beef cubes with the pulverized rice and blended mixture for at least 10 minutes.
  4. SEAR. On a pan, heat cooking oil and sear the marinated beef cubes for 5 minutes. Then add water, coconut milk and kaffir lime leaves. Mix well.
  5. SIMMER. Put on the lid and let it simmer until beef is tender. Add toasted coconut meat from Step 1. Stir occasionally to prevent burning.
  6. SEASON. Add lime zest, SARSAYA® and salt. Mix well.
  7. SERVE. Transfer onto a serving plate and enjoy!

Cooking Tips

For a faster cooking process, you may pre-cook the beef using a pressure cooker before marinating the beef.
