Mee Rebus

This Mee Rebus recipe, I originally jotted down from a cooking programme hosted by Chef Wan, long ago. I remember, the first time I gave it a try. It was a hit. Now, it remains as my regular Mee Rebus recipe & to those who frequent the makan-makan at my place, this is your favourite Mee Rebus.

It is indeed simple to cook. Perhaps the preparation takes longer time but I promise you it is worth every trouble you have to endure in your kitchen.. ;-)

First is to sautee 10 cloves of shallots, 8 cloves of garlic & an inch of ginger all blended together.

Once almost golden & fragrant, add in a packet of beef curry paste.

When the paste is cooked, add in a kg of sliced beef,an inch of galangal (lengkuas) lightly pounded & 2 tbsp of preserved soy bean(tauchu).

Preserved soybean (tauchu)

Stir for awhile & pour in 400 - 500ml water.

Let simmer until the beef tender. Once tender, join in mashed sweet potato (a kg of sweet potatoes, boil until tender & mash)

Stir & add in 2-3 tbsp of grind peanuts. (The peanuts are fried without fats until crispy, discard the skin & grind. But I chose to microwave the peanuts for a few minutes before grinding instead of frying). Add more water if necessary.

Add 2 tbsp of sugar & a tbsp of salt or to taste. Join in 4 cut tomatoes & it's ready.

Serve with yellow noodle. Run hot water over the noodle before serving.

The condiments that go together with my Mee Rebus.

Clockwise- boiled eggs, fresh chillies, fried tofu, sliced chinese coriander, cut calamansi & fried shallots
