1. Goat Curry
Goat curry actually resembles curry, but the way to cook it requires adding curry leaves or better known as koja bay leaves. Then mixed with spices, such as coriander, cumin, and chili to make a delicious goat curry. This menu is unique because qurban meat is usually processed into curry, right Foodies?
Meatballs are certainly not the first in mind when you hear about processing qurban meat. However, this menu can be an interesting choice for an abundant supply of meat at home. Besides being simple, this menu can also be enjoyed by everyone at home. Cooked in a delicious gravy, then served with noodles, tofu, and vegetables or additional toppings of your choice, Foodies!
Jerky Balado is most suitable if you process it with beef shanks or meat parts that have a few veins. Jerky can be processed with beef or goat. Don’t worry too, Foodies, it’s not difficult to make beef jerky! What you need to use is also easy to find.
In the cooking process, this dish is divided into 3, braising the meat, frying the meat, then sautéing the beef. Boil the meat with the spices, then pound and fry the meat. After frying until dry, then stir-fry the beef with balado spices like red chili, cayenne pepper, onion, and garlic. Then voilà!
4. Dim sum
Dim sum is currently very popular and loved by many people, aside from being tasty, making dim sum is also easy! Most of the dim sum we know is made from chicken or shrimp, but the dim sum can also be made using beef, Foodies. The method is the same as we make dim sum usually, only the meat used is beef. It’s really unique, isn’t the menu for this qurban meat?
Other than dim sum, we can also make katsu. If usually chicken is used for katsu, this time we can use beef! The method is also very easy, you only need to season the meat then coat it with flour and breadcrumbs, then fry it! Also try not to wash the meat and wipe the meat first before making it, so that the inside of the meat doesn’t spill everywhere and wet the katsu layer of flour and become mushy.
No mackerel? Beef can do just fine! To make siomay, beef can be used and processed, Foodies. Just need to use ground beef and knead with tapioca flour and eggs and spices! After that, the dough can be boiled, steamed, or fried according to taste. Don’t forget if you want it to be even more delicious, add complements such as cabbage, potatoes, and peanut sauce. Surely the beef dumplings can compete with the taste of the mackerel dumplings.
Well, those are the unique dishes made from sacrificial meats. According to you, what is the most unique menu that has ever been on the dining table during Eid al-Adha, Foodies?
