Beef Serunding

One of my favorite meal during fasting month and Eid is this beef serunding aka shredded spicy beef.
I have a recipe from last year. It was the best serunding I have ever cooked.
But for tonight, I am using different spices and with less water.
The first thing I did was to cook the beef until tender.
Drain the water.
Let it cool and shred the the beef into small strips following the grain.
Instead of using chuck cut roast beef, this time I am using a brisket cut beef. There is no particular reason for me to use this type of beef.

To cook this serunding I am using 1 packet of shredded dried unsweetened coconut flakes.
I also need about 1/2 cup curry powder.
2 cups blended sambal (dried hot peppers and dried poblano, onion, garlic, ginger, lemongrass, coriander and cumin)
2 cups water
4 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt

In a big pot, fry the coconut flakes without oil.
Keep stirring to prevent the coconut from burning.
Add shredded beef.
Mix well.
Mix curry powder with 2 tablespoons water.
Add into the beef.
Add sambal.
Mix well.
Add 2 cups water.
Add sugar and salt.
Let the beef cook until dry.
Let it cool completely before storing.



  1. Zue, I can't wait to try this serunding :)

  2. I think you will like this one because I used cili padi mix with poblano. The hottest Serunding ever!

  3. salam k.zue..wah rajinnyer menyerunding! kita x pernah try wat serunding lagi sbb maleh nk menyiat daging tuh..hehe! pepun resipi nih kita masuk list ye! selamat berpose & barsahur ye!

  4. Salam Ina. Thank you. It took me 2 days to finish cooking this serunding. First day I just boiled the beef. Let it cool down and while watching Tv, siat daging. Masuk peti ais dulu. Lenguh tangan dah.
    Second day baru dapat assemble dalam kuali. Nasib baik sambal memang sentiasa ada stock. I like to blend the chili, onion, garlic and lemongrass and then pack them in small container and freeze them. Senang bila nak guna dah ada. Maklum la kat kedai tak dak jual cili boh. Kena buat sendiri. Selamat menyambut lebaran ya.
