Pungent Javanese Beef (Semur Daging)


"Semur" means "braise" or "stew" with sugar, soy sauce, clove, nutmeg and pepper. Serve with hot boiled rice.



  1. Cook and stir onion, garlic and gingerroot in oil in 10-inch skillet over medium heat until onion is tender; remove with slotted spoon. Add beef to skillet. Cook, stirring frequently, until all liquid is evaporated, and beef is brown, about 25 minutes.
  2. Stir in onion mixture and remaining ingredients except rice. Heat to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, until beef is tender and sauce is thickened, about 1 1/2 hours. Skim off fat.
  3. Serve with rice.
