Spicy Beef Stew (Bo Kho)

THE INGREDIENTS:
1 large onion, finely chopped
5 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 tablespoon salt
1 stalk lemongrass, bruised
2 pieces star anise
1 cinnamon stick
salt, pepper and lime mix
1 cup thickly chopped carrots
2 red chilies, sliced
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon curry powder
1 cup beer (optional)
2 pounds top round beef, cut into large cubes
2 tablespoons annatto seeds
6 tablespoons cooking oil
GARNISH: 1 cup mint leaves

Heat half of the oil with annatto seeds and stir quickly until the oil takes on the redish-brown color of the seeds. Set aside, strain and remove the seeds.
Marinate the beef cubes with half the garlic, onion, salt, sugar and half of the annatto seed oil mixture and marinate for 45 minutes
Take the remaining annattor seed oil and heat it for 10 minutes. Cook the remaining garlic until soft. Add curry powder, beer and marinade. Braise the beef, adding a little water, lemongrass, star and cinnamon. Before the meat is tender, add carrots. Simmer 3-5 minutes or until done. Serve with the mint leave garnish.

Enjoy!
