Today is a rare weather in Barcelona, the sky is too gray, it feels the cold winter, but I'd like to feel the summer right now and there is nothing better than caribbean and asian flavors to solve it, today we are goona cook something delicious and the same time your house, flat or whatever will have a coconut air freshener.
The meat melted on your tongue and the coconut sauce was nothing short of a flavor bomb. I even do like the coconut milk sauce, there’s so much more you can do with this little sweet flavor bomb. The sweetness of the milk and the brown sugar is terrific with the beef and onions definitely adds body to the stew.
Now, to the kitchen!!!!!
Beef stew with coconut sauce
For 3 or 4 not too hungry people:
-500 grs beef (for stew*) cut in cubes
-3 Tbp brown sugar
-2 big red onions (also can use normal onion, the white one)
-500 ml cream coconut milk
-1 Tbp of salt
-1 cup soja sauce
-1 lemon grass
-3 Tbp vegetal oil
Peel and finely mince one onion, and add to the meat with soja sauce and a cup of coconut milk. save it 3 hours before cook it but i rather to marinate 24h before.
THREE HOURS OR ONE DAY LATER-
Heat the oil and stir a crush garlic for few seconds and then remove it.
Put the oil on high heat and quickly brown the beef. I should have browned this in 2 or maybe even 3 batches. Remove the beef from the casserole.
Sautee the onions and the brown sugar in the beef grease for about 5 minutes. Throw the beef in with the onions. Stir to combine for 4 minutes, then add the big flavor maker! the cream coconut milk.
Add the lemon grass, salt and pop the lid on and simmer the stew, over low heat, for 30 minutes.
You can serve this with rice or bread, so what are you waiting for?
