Saute ginger and star anise in a big wok first, then add onion. Rub salt into beef, add beef into the wok and stir-fry until lightly done. Add water until it almost covers the beef. Boil and then cook in medium low heat until soft, about 1.5 hours (do not open the lid while cook). About 20 minutes if using a pressure cooker.

Note: 這是朋友 Lorraine 教的特製辣咖哩牛肉秘方,真是又香又辣的好味道!印尼咖哩醬和香茅在中國超市如大華,永和都可以買到。印度咖哩粉則要到印度或中東店買的才道地。小橘子葉的形狀特別,若找不到就用檸檬葉也可以。
