How to make " Dendeng Balado "


Hello hive friends, this time I want to share the recipe for "Dendeng Balado". Dendeng balado is a typical West Sumatran dish made with thin slices of dry fried beef. Usually this food is found in Minang restaurants or at weddings.

This morning, I got a call from my friend. They want to visit my house in order to get in touch. Coincidentally, we haven't seen each other for a long time. So I also prepared food to be served in the meeting later.

Actually, this is my first time trying to cook this "Dendeng" . I tried to use a recipe I got from my mother. In order to get the right taste in processed meat, it must be revealed first and most importantly, don't lack seasoning

Ingredients for uncovering flesh

  • 500gr beef
  • One piece of garlic
  • Two red onions
  • Galangal one segment
  • Coriander
  • Bay leaf
  • Lemongrass
  • Salt

How to process
Step 1
Cut the meat thinly, then wash it with clean water

Step 2
Puree the garlic, onion, galangal and coriander

Step 3
Combine the ground beef and spices in the skillet. Don't forget to add salt, bay leaf and lemongrass

Step 4
Boiled the meat over medium heat until the spices seep into the meat thoroughly as shown in the image below

Step 5
After that, "geprek" the meat so that the marinade is more absorbed into the interior and to produce tasty meat

Step 6
After that, fry the meat over medium heat until cooked ( brownish)

Next to make beef dendeng balado, we need one more step from the ingredients below:
Red chili pepper
Red onion
Garlic Onion

How to cook it
First, add a little oil. Saute onions. Next, geprek chili, onion and garlic. Next, put it in the pan. Don't forget to add sliced ​​tomatoes and sugar too And lastly, put the meat that has been fried earlier into the face, stir until blended. And the beef dendeng is ready to be served.
