Kampar Beef Soup Noodle

No longer do you have to exert yourself or your stove all day long to get this rich nourishing bowl of soup! It just requires a little patience to cook up those succulent beef tendons, soft juicy daikon cubes soaked up in rich broth and springy egg noodles with bits of tender char siew.
To get the best flavours in this dish, nothing beats making your own beef stock. Full of rich flavours and tender meat; looking at it is enough to make one’s mouth water. The key to perfecting this popular traditional Malaysian dish is remarkably simple. Just add in those blanched beef brisket, shank, tripe and tendons together with some spices and condiments in one large pot to boil – there is your hearty bowl of clear broth to enjoy!
That special dark brown concoction is equally simple too! The unique mix of dark caramel sauce, soya sauce and abalone sauce, together with those tiny yet so juicy char siew pieces, it helps add that sweet savoury moistness and bouncy texture to the rather plain noodles.
This warm bowl of beef brisket soup doesn’t require much effort yet is packed with collagen and flavours, along with that egg noodles tossed in glistening dark brown sauce – it doesn’t get any better than this!
