Delicious steamy beef stew with carrots is good for your health during this rainy season.


1   Beef (shank or brisket)500 gram
2   Carrot3 carrots
3   Tomato1 tomato
4   Garlic3 cloves
5   Anise1 anise
6   Laurel1 laurel
7   Onion½ onion
8   Cilantro, Coriander50 gram
9   Sugar, Salt, MSG, Broth Mix Powder1 teaspoon each 
10   Cooking oil, fish sauce1 tablespoon each

Cooking steps 

Step 1: Prepare ingredients 

– Beef: clean the beef, cut them into square cubes about 2cm thick. You should cut the beef horizontally so that when eating, the meat is tender and sweet but not chewy.

– Carrots: Peel, wash, and chop them into round pieces about 2cm long. If you want the dish to be more appealing, use a saw knife to shape them into flowers or carve patterns. 

– Tomatoes: wash them well with water, chop them into 6 and remove the seeds.

– Onion: peel the onion, cut off the root and wash it through water. Next, chop the onion into slices about 2cm long

– Cilantro, Coriander: cut off the root, wash with water, and mince them.

– Garlic: peel, wash, crush the garlic and mince them well. 

– Anise, laurel: wash with water.

Step 2: Marinate the beef

  • To make the meat more flavorful, you should marinate the meat for about 30 – 45 minutes before cooking. The seasoning ratio is 1 teaspoon of salt, 1 teaspoon of sugar, ½ teaspoon of fish sauce, and 1 spoon of pepper. 
  • Add the seasonings in and mix well with the meat. Remember to knead the meat evenly.

Step 3: Saute the beef

  • Heat the pot with ½ spoon of cooking oil. Once the oil is hot, add garlic and stir-fry until golden.
  • After that, add the marinated beef in and stir-fry until the meat is slightly cooked.
  • Next, pour in the tomatoes and cook with the beef until they are soft. 

Step 4: Braise the beef with carrots

  • When the tomatoes are cooked, pour water in and bring it to a boil (the water level is about 2 – 3 cm above the meat). At the same time, add carrots, anise, laurel in, and cover the lit. 
  • Season the stew with some salt (note: remember not to put in too much since the broth would thicken and the dish will get saltier), MSG and let the stew simmer so the seasonings could coat the vegetables.
  • Braise the beef and carrots for 30 to 45 minutes until both the beef and carrots are tender. Taste again and adjust to your liking. Pour the sliced onion in and cook for 5 more minutes. Turn off the heat. 

Step 5: Garnish and enjoy 

  • After turning off the stove, sprinkle cilantro and coriander on top and take some into a bowl. Garnish the dish with fresh herbs, black pepper, or chili slices to add some colors.
