Ompong's Spicy Beef Rendang (healer OT)

The Rules:

1) Be excellent to each other. No one likes a jerk. Don't be a jerk in this thread. No fighting, no put downs, no name calling - or else Reta will beat you with a stick. >:(

2a) The title of the next thread is to be decided by general acceptance before this one caps; try not to overlap with previous ones. Whomever caps the thread should make the new one.

2b) Keep the ToS in mind when deciding on a thread title. This will make it far less likely to be deleted. Also, the title of the thread should always involve food! This is the healer forum and we're weird.

3) Copy and paste these rules and the below list into the first post of the new thread. Add the title of the new thread to the bottom of the list.

Somebody tell me what to put for the title.
90 Troll Druid
put some food


1 tablespoon coriander seeds
1 teaspoon fennel seeds
1 teaspoon black peppercorns
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
3 pounds, 5 ounces topside or chuck steak, cut into 1 1/4 inch cubes
3 lemongrass stalks, white part only, bruised with a pestle
3 kaffir lime leaves, plus 1 extra, rolled and thinly sliced
2 1/4 cups tinned coconut milk
1 cup water
1 tablespoon salt, or to taste
2 tablespoons sugar, or to taste
1 cup desiccated coconut
Spice paste
1/2 ounce (about 20) dried red chillies, soaked in hot water for 30 minutes until softened, then drained
4 1/4 ounces (about 12 small) French shallots, peeled
1 1/2 inch piece galangal, peeled
1 1/2 inch piece ginger, peeled
3/4 inch piece turmeric, peeled, or 1 tablespoon ground tumeric

Toast the coriander seeds, fennel seeds and black peppercorns in a dry frying pan over low heat. Once the fennel seeds start making popping sounds, transfer the toasted spices into a mortar and pestle or a spice grinder, and grind into a fine powder. Set aside.
To make the spice paste, put all the ingredients into a food processor and process into a fine paste.

Heat the vegetable oil in large saucepan over medium–low heat, add the spice paste and fry gently for 8–10 minutes until fragrant and darker red in color. Add the beef, lemongrass, 3 whole kaffir lime leaves and ground spices, stirring to mix well. Cook for about 3 minutes until the beef is lightly cooked, then add the coconut milk and water, stir to combine, then turn the heat down to a simmer. Cook, uncovered, for 1 1/2 hours until the meat is tender and the sauce is thick. Season with salt and sugar, to taste.

Meanwhile, heat a dry frying pan over low heat. Add the desiccated coconut and toast until golden, stirring constantly so the coconut doesn’t burn (take care it doesn’t burn or it will have an unpleasant flavor). Set aside to cool, then put in a food processor and pulse a few times until the coconut becomes fine crumbs.

Add the toasted coconut to the beef, stirring frequently over low heat for about 15 minutes, or until the coconut releases its oil and is absorbed by the meat. Garnish with the sliced kaffir lime leaf and serve with steamed rice.

its just a copy paste anyway lol :D

Vero ain't had one in a while and we have a few new kids too.

Or OMGpong. Or Leblue.

Also I am in the mood for tiramisu.

Which n00bs Winni?

Well, that's the purpose of the addon. You disable what you don't like, and keep what you do. You can also resize/move everything.

I disagree. It's a packaged add-on designed to be used as a unit. While it's easily adjusted, I don't think it's like what you're saying. It's a "complete UI replacement". So if I want certain things NOT replaced, it's a bit more difficult. Sure what they give me is very customizable, but maybe I don't want what they give me. ;)

That being said, *wrinkles up nose* NOT EVERY1 IS AS SMRT AS YOU TIRIEL *runs off crying*

Pong, what foods do you like?

Erm, I've had loads of threads

Omgpong's Spicy Rendang gets my vote.

Even though I ain't entirely sure what a Rendang is. It sounds dirty so I approve.

I vote for Ompong as well. Maybe in a few threads I'll have another, but honestly, it's nice to see a variety of names ;)

From the last thread:

Question for Vero:

Do you sell a lot of MoP greens? I usually am lazy and DE them, but I have a bunch, and I'm wondering if you do sell them, how you go about figuring out whether they will sell. Or maybe you just list them and see what happens?
90 Troll Druid
woah, thank you very much guys !! :p

*hugs* everyone
