Beef Delight


2 tablespoon olive oil

1 pound top round steak cut into 1 inch cubes

1 medium red onion, half dice and half slice lengthwise

1 cup water

1 1/2 teaspoon instant coffee granules

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 carrot

1/2 red bell pepper

4 sweet pepper seeded and cut half

2 tablespoon raisins

1 potato cut half lenghtwise and slice it 1/3 inch.

2 tablespoon tomato ketchup

1 tablespoon thousand island


Heat olive oil in deep skillet or pot on medium heat. Brown the beef. Then add onion and bell peppers. Stir for 3 minutes. Then add water, coffee granules, black pepper, cinnamon, potato and thousand island. Simmer for about 20 minutes covered or until beef slightly tender. Add raisins. Cook for another 5 minutes. No stirring needed. Serve warm with rice or noodle.

I use the Yellow Rice from Vigo. This rice is completely seasoned and the taste is superb.


  1. Zue, tak sangka ya we can cook with kopi and sedap jugak the beef and a little hint of coffee flavor.

  2. Ya, a pinch of coffee bitterness but flavorable. It came from healthy recipe book so it must play a role in keeping us healthy or alert?
