Sempoi Nasi Daging Lekaih (Fast Beef Rice)

still in rice cooker, just cooked
I just felt bored with just plain rice & side dishes (lazy actually coz I'd have to cook more ;)), then i remembered my aunt wrote her recipe for this dish ... rice + meat in 1 dish :). just have to prepare some salad to accompany.

1 kg beef (gravy beef / chuck tender / rump / any cut will do :))
2.5 liters water

- cook beef till tender (if u have beef stock will be even faster :))
- if using ready-to-cook stock, slice beef into about 1cm thick & 2-inch long

2 cups basmathi rice / long grain rice
2-3 shallots, sliced
1-2 garlic, sliced
2-inch ginger, sliced
4 cardamoms
3 cloves
2 star anise
1 cinnamon stick

- rinse and drain rice
- heat oil in rice cooker pot over medium heat
- saute shallots, garlic, ginger & spices till almost golden
- add beef (if, as explained above)
- add rice, fry for about 1 minute
- add broth / stock (ratio - 1 cup rice : 1 1/2 cups broth or depending on the instruction for cooking the rice)
- season with salt to taste (if using stock, please taste before adding salt)
- transfer into rice cooker & cook as usual
- stir once when rice is 3/4 way cooked
- serve hot with tomatoes & cucumber salad or any veggies of your choice

Happy trying ... :)
