Semur Daging is a flavorful and aromatic Indonesian beef stew that is slow-cooked with a blend of spices, kecap manis (sweet soy sauce), and vegetables. The tender chunks of beef are simmered in a rich sauce made with shallots, garlic, ginger, star anise, cloves, and nutmeg, which gives the dish its signature aroma and flavor.
To make semur daging, the beef is first marinated in a mixture of sweet soy sauce, tamarind paste, and spices, then seared until golden brown. The caramelized beef is then simmered with the spice paste and a combination of vegetables such as carrots and potatoes until tender.
Semur daging is usually served with steamed rice and garnished with fried shallots and chopped scallions. It is a comforting and hearty dish that is popular in Indonesia and is enjoyed by many as a traditional family meal.
