Sate Padang (July’s Masak Bareng Yuuk)

source: dapurbunda
taste-o-meter: 6.5/10

When I made this dish, my housemate asked, “What’s the occasion, mbak?”. I calmly said, “Nothing, I just need to blow off some steam:D . If you read previous posts, you must have known that I’m currently driven up the wall by my thesis and paper. It’s ok, hard work will pay off. Hopefully ;)

The recipe itself is gotten from the famous dapurbunda. I made some drastic changes, due to not having a grill set and fresh turmeric at hand. They still tasted ok. But please, if you can, dont oven-grill your satay. It looses much of the flavour and fragrance.

1/2 kg beef (mine is already cut in small pieces)
1 lemongrass, bruised.
2 cm ginger, mashed
2 cm galangal, bruised
1 turmeric leaf (I did not have it)
4 lemon leaves
500 ml water
50 gr rice flour, diluted in water (PLEASE do not forgot to dilute it in water as I did. It was a pain to remove all the rice flour clumps)

Produce a spice paste using the following ingredients:

6 dried chillies (I drenched them in a bowl of hot water for five minutes)
5 shallots
5 cloves of garlic
1 tbs ground corriander
1 tsp cumin powder
5 cm turmeric (I used turmeric powder)
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp sugar


Mix beef with the spice paste. Let it sit for about half an hour
Boil beef + spice paste with the rest of the ingredients (except the rice flour). Let it boil and the beef tenderizes
Remove beef from the pan.
Add in *diluted* rice flour to the spiced mixture. Let it thickens. Remove from heat.
Arrange beef chunks on skewers.
Bake beef (on skewers) in a preaheated oven until it turnes into a darker color( I set mine at 180 degree celsius).
Serve with the sauce and fried shallots.
