Mee Rebus Recipe:

PREP 30 mins
COOK 1 hr 45 mins
HEAT 2
Serves 4

You Need:

500g diced beef or 3 large carrots peeled and cut into large bite-size pieces for a veg version
250g sweet potatoes - peeled and cut into bite-size pieces
150g shallots or 1 medium red onion - roughly chopped
3 cloves of garlic - roughly chopped
Fresh ginger - roughly chopped to make 2 tbsp
2 lemongrass stalks - thinly sliced
10g bunch of coriander (optional) - roughly chopped
1 lime
250g dried egg noodles
1 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp fish sauce or soy sauce for a veg version
1 portion of Mee Rebus Blend

Method:

Blend the shallots with the garlic, ginger, lemongrass, fish sauce, sugar, MEE REBUS BLEND and 1 tsp salt to a smooth paste (adding a splash of water if necessary)
Fry the paste and the beef in 2 tbsp oil for 10 minutes or until all the liquid has evaporated, the paste is beginning to brown and stick to the bottom of the pan and the beef is beginning to cook around the edges
Add 500ml water and the sweet potatoes then cover and simmer for 1 ½ hours or until the beef is tender and the sweet potatoes are falling apart (it may take a bit longer - supermarket beef can be very tough!) - don’t worry if it looks a little soupy at this stage, the noodles will soak up alot of the liquid
5 minutes before the beef is ready cook the noodles as per the packet instructions then drain and divide between 4 bowls
Stir the juice of ½ the lime into the beef. Divide between the 4 bowls then serve topped with the coriander (if using) and remaining ½ lime cut into wedges

Really glad you enjoyed it - happy spicing!

5/5

Smells fantastic when heated in oil. I do wish there was more in the packet though, but that's how I feel with most of the spice packets. Looking at the dish photo and recipe, It's not quite like the mee rebus I've seen in Singapore, but taste-wise it's not an issue - delicious! I did add sliced green chilies when serving - these are typical topping for mee rebus and they add a nice fresh crunch and sharpness which contrasts beautifully with the rich, spiced gravy. I would dearly love to see this dish expanded as a 'full-on' Spicery dinner complete with fritters and sambal.
