Turmeric Roasted Beef~Daging Pacak - MFF Pahang #3

Unbelievably easy.

I think the traditional method to cook this is to skewer it with bamboo, hence the name 'daging pacak' which literally means, skewered beef.

But the recipe where I took this from just did it this way, I followed suit. I am just following the Pahang Sultanah's method.

It's dry and salty. Doesn't look special, but it's addictive. Just like fried salted pork is. The more you eat, the more you want. My husband and I nibbled at them like snacks after dinner was over. Overdosing with sodium, LOL.

I served this with Nasi Kebuli

500gm beef, I used shortloin (daging batang pinang), or any other softer cuts
1 Tbsp salt
1 Tbsp turmeric powder
1 Tbsp oil or more.

1. Marinate the beef with salt and turmeric for a few hours.
2. Preheat oven at 220C (Grill)
3. Line a baking tray with foil/baking paper. Rub a wire grid with with oil.
4. Rub beef pieces with oil and place onto the oiled grid.
5. Grill for 40 minutes (or until surface looks dry), turning once every 10 minutes.
6. Leave beef to cool down and thinly slice it to serve.

  1. easy, the meat looks like "dendeng kering" in indonesian version.,you are so right, can't stop eating this ;)

  2. Nice and easy! Will give this a try! Thanks for sharing!

  3. Totally my kind of recipe! Is the cooked meat supposed to be dry , like almost jerky type or still moist inside, like lean charsiu?

  4. Nisa's Mom,
    I think both country's cuisine do have a lot of similarities, just like the language :)

    Haha, u have to watch ur sugar but not sodium eh, hahah! Eating this with porridge is nice also.

    Maybe I left mine around for sometime after roasting, so it was quite dry. It's small like char siew.. and with the high sodium, not as moist as char siew. Almost like jerky.

  5. Oh Jerky? I think I found another dish that I can cook for our wine session. :)

  6. Oh, it's that easy! Must try this recipe. Tumeric and salt combo is nice.

  7. Hi, this looks so good yet sounds so unbelievably easy! Tempted, tempted...

  8. It seems easy. But for a first timer like me, I doubt it. :P Is it okay to add more turmeric powder? I kinda enjoy that spice. :)
