Soto Mie (noodles in beef stew)

So glad that the hot weather has been cooling off by the rain these days! But yeah, the government already gave a warning to be prepared for the flood that might happen soon in Jakarta. It's predicted at the end of January or beginning of February before the Chinese New Year.

Need something nice and warm... and I think a bowl of hot Soto Mie (noodle in beef stew) is just a perfect comforting meal on a rainy day :)


The preparation of making a bowl of Soto Mie:

Left: chopped asian celery, salt, pepper, MSG.
Right: the beef stew (beef broth, nutmeg, ginger, coriander, shallot, garlic, black pepper, salt, MSG), sweet soy sauce.

Left: Rissoles (small croquettes filled with vermicelli noodles), tomato
Right: Beef (plus the legs part)

Left: Kaffir lime
Right: Yellow noodles, Vermicelli, slices white cabbage.

Put in a bow:l noodles, white cabbage, vermicelli, slices of rissoles.
Add pepper, salt, MSG, then chopped asian celery, slices of tomato and beef.

Pour the beef stew in the bowl.

Garnish with Emping (malinjo nuts chip) and fried shallot.

  11. Mmm, I love noodles, and I love beef stew! This looks like a great combination.
    Question: Most of your posts are about street vendors, but do you ever make these dishes at home?

    Mica: Psssttt.... No, I hardly make these dishes at home because it's much easier just to buy them on the street. Cheap and less effort! hehehe...

  24. When ever you get tired of that heat, Selby, you can send some our way. Another gloomy day here in PA. Do be sure and prepare for the flood, just in case. Mother Nature is quite unpredictable this year!

    Now, as for that stew and those photos, I love the touch of nutmeg and your pics are simply mouth watering. Do they ship abroad???

    Thanks for sharing...

  26. So Soto is Sundanese food? I always thought it's Javanese...

  27. Oooh, looks utterly delish, esp. the topping of emping. I got my Pontianak-born friend to bring emping back to KL everytime she visits her hometown cos I love these crackers so much. :)
