Lempah Kuning Daging is a traditional Indonesian dish that typically consists of beef cooked in a yellow turmeric-based sauce. The word “lempah” means spicy and sour, while “kuning” refers to the yellow color of the turmeric used in the dish. The meat is marinated in a blend of aromatic spices, including turmeric, lemongrass, galangal, ginger, and garlic, before being cooked in coconut milk along with the spice mixture.
The resulting dish is flavorful, fragrant, and slightly spicy, with a hint of sweetness from the coconut milk. It is usually served with steamed rice and a side of vegetables or sambal, a spicy chili paste. Lempah Kuning Daging is a popular dish in Indonesian cuisine, particularly in the island of Sumatra.
