Note: 紅酒不用用太貴的,一般的就好。百里香和洋香菜用新鮮的是最好了啦!沒有新鮮的用乾燥的粉也可以。還可以加入芹菜和蘑菇一起煮。
Do not need to use expensive red wine, regular is good enough for cooking.  Dry thyme and dry parsley are good to use if there are no fresh ones.  You may also add celery and mushroom for even richer taste.

薑和八角用油炒香,再加洋蔥拌炒。牛肉先用塩抓一抓,加入鍋中用大火拌炒至變色。再加水到剛剛好蓋過肉。大火煮開後,轉中小火繼續煮到牛肉軟了,約一個半小時(中間不要隨意打開蓋子)。如用壓力鍋則約二十分鐘即可。
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。
