daging padprik

also known as padprik beef. or, according to mr. wikipedia, it's stir fry beef, thai style. you can read more about thai dishes here and about pad prik here.

i took the recipe from the 1 hari 1 resipi book. taste wise, well, i think it would've been better. but, in all fairness, i lacked one key ingredient which was the tom yum paste. i thought of substituting it with a tom yum cube, but apparently, the robot malfunctioned, again, and forgot to tell me that we were out. so...what to do...we make do.

ready? here we go!

you will need:
300g beef
½ carrot, cut in any way you want
4 long beans, i didn't have any, so i used french beans
1 red chili
1 big onion, cut into circles

(b) for the sauce/gravy
1 tbsp tom yum paste/sauce, i didn't have any *boohoo*
1 tbsp thick soy sauce
5 tbsp chili sauce
2 tbsp tomato sauce
3 tbsp oyster sauce
5 kaffir lime leaves, i didn't put any as my roomie HATES them! :-p
1 lemongrass, bruised
5 bird's eye chillies, bruised
3 cloves garlic, bruised
½ cup water
cooking oil

the how to:
1)  heat oil in wok, saute the garlic and lemongrass till fragrant.

2)  add in the beef and stir.

3)  in goes the carrots, thick soy sauce, tomato sauce, chili sauce and the oyster sauce. let the mixture simmer till it starts to boil.

4)  add in the french beans. i also added some tomatoes.

5)  next, in goes all the chillies, stir till mixed. add in a little bit of water.

6)  when the dish start to boil, add it the kaffir lime leaves, big onion. stir and heat off.

7)  ready to serve with rice!

i wish i had the tom yum paste because i'm sure the taste will be a tad different, but my *ehem* version is still edible and nice, mind you. so, get yourselves a jar of tom yum paste and padprik away!!
