Ok, nothing much I have in the fridge. There’s some meatballs. So I thought I should just make Mee Bakso.
For the Soup:
1kg of store-bought beefballs (I like to score a cross on it and it’ll fluff up when boiled…pretty)
5 cloves of garlic – crushed
2 shallots -wedged
a few slices of ginger
2 beef cubes (either Knorr or Maggi)
6 cups water or more
salt and pepper to taste
a tsp of sugar
1kg of yellow noodles – washed and scalded
some beansprouts – washed and scalded
some mustard greens (chye sim/sawi) – scalded
some fried shallots
pickled green chillies
1) Heat abt 1/4 cup of oil with 1 tbsp of sesame oil.
2) Saute the shallots, garlic and ginger till fragrant.
3) Add the beef cubes and enough water for yr soup. Drop in the beefballs.
4) Simmer till boiling, then add salt,sugar and pepper to taste.
To serve, pour hot soup and beefballs over noodles with beansprouts and the mustard greens. Garnish with shallots and pickled green chillies.
