    List of Ingredients

    2 lbs beef round steak or boneless chuck
    2 cups water
    7 tbs peanut or corn oil
    1 cup thinly sliced onions
    10 cloves garlic, peeled and sliced thin
    3 tbs red hot 'Sambal Oelek' chili paste (hot chili sauce)
    Salt to taste
    1 cup cubed ripe tomatoes


    Place beef in water in a 4-quart pot. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes. Discard water and cool beef until it can be handled. Slice beef as thin as possible, then cut into 2-inch squares. Let drain in a colander for about 10 minutes before drying with paper towels.
    Heat 4 tbs. oil in a 12-inch skillet set over medium-high heat. Add beef slices and fry for 5 minutes, or until beef is brown and dry. Remove and set aside.
    Heat remaining 3 tbs. oil in same skillet. Fry onions and garlic for 3 minutes. Add chili paste, salt and tomatoes. Cook for 5 mins. more. Add beef anf stir-fry for 5 mins to coat slices and distribute flavors.
    Serve immediately with rice (to reduce spiciness) and a cucumber/ vinegar salad.
    Serve 4 as a main dish or 8 as a side dish.
