Assorted Seafood Bakso Noodle

Mee bakso simply means meatball noodles. There are many versions of mee bakso but this time round, I decided to use seafood balls instead for a change. However, I still used beef as the stock base for more added flavour.


Ingredients
Stock
1 kg beef, slightly fatty
1 pkt sup bunjut (this you can buy from the supermarket where all the spices are packed in a small bag. Very convenient)
3L water
salt & pepper to taste

1 pkt bee hoon, soaked in water till tender
fish balls, sotong/cuttlefish balls and crab balls
2 large onion
5 clove garlic
2 inch ginger
2T oil

Garnishes
lettuce, julienne
sliced lime
blanched beansprouts
chilli
chopped parsley and spring onions

Method
1. Boil the beef for about 20mins in a litre of water then throw away the water (this is to get rid of the impurities)
2. Fill the pot with 2L water and add beef and sup bunjut
3. Simmer for about 1-2 hrs till beef is tender, remove spices and put aside
4. Blend onion, garlic and ginger into a paste
5. Heat oil in a pot and fry blended paste till fragrant
6. Add stock into the pot and let it simmer
7. Add beef pieces, balls, salt and pepper to taste and let it boil for about 20mins
8. At the same time, drain bee hoon and pour hot boiling water to tenderised the noodle
9. To serve, pour soup over the noodle with some of the beef pieces and seafood balls
10.Garnish with lettuce, beansprouts, lime, chopped parsley and spring onions and serve
