  1. SOP KONRO - Beef Rib Soup:

    • Preheat the oven to 200°C. Season beef ribs with salt and pepper.
    • Rub half of the Knorr Professional Multipurpose Indonesian Spice Mix Paste paste on every piece of the beef ribs. Place them over a rack set on a lined tray. Brown the beef for 15-20 minutes.
    • In a heavy-bottomed braising pan or soup pot, heat oil over low to medium heat.
    • Sweat the garlic, shallots, galangal until fragrant.
    • Add the remaining paste, along with the kaffir leaves.
    • Pour in the water, tamarind paste, Knorr Professional Beef Flavoured Powder, Bango Kecap Manis, and lemongrass stalks. Bring to a boil. Taste and adjust seasoning.
    • Add the browned beef ribs to the liquid. Simmer for 2-3 hours or until beef becomes tender. This can be done in the oven at 165°C.
    • After the beef is tender, gently remove it from the broth to prepare it for the service.
    • Pass the soup through a strainer.
    • To remove the fat layer from the soup, you can pour a good amount of ice cubes into the soup. The fat will adhere to the ice. Immediately remove the fat-covered ice using a spider strainer.
    • Bring the soup back to a simmer. Taste and adjust seasoning.  
  2. Garnish:

    • Sprinkle the beef with fried shallots or garlic. Garnish with coriander leaves.
    • Serve with sliced chilies, lime wedges, and sambal.
