Javanese Braised Beef Recipe

Javanese Braised Beef Recipe.

Remember when I grew up, mum often bought me this dish from our famous local restaurant “Sate & Gule Bu Karto” in a local market. The place is always pack as it’s only restaurant who sells Satay and Gule/Javanese Lamb Curry that time. The way they cook the satay is using coal and I can tell you that the taste is just delicious. The gule it self is always fresh, and so this “ungkep dish”.  The “ungkep” / braised beef served with “serundeng” which is fried finely grated coconut and rice, of course :). Local people often cook this dish on special occasion like wedding or any other parties. It’s kind of delicacy when I was little as not many people can afford meats. I hope you enjoy this Javanese braised beef recipe.
