  1. Blend olive oil, shallots, chile pepper, garlic, shrimp paste, lemon grass, ginger root, and turmeric together in the bowl of a food processor until smooth paste forms, 30 seconds to 1 minute.
  2. Heat paste in a large saucepan over medium heat until very fragrant, about 3 minutes. Add coconut milk, palm sugar, kaffir lime leaves, cinnamon, cloves, sea salt, and white pepper. Bring mixture to a boil and cook until thickened slightly, about 10 minutes. Stir in beef; reduce heat to gentle simmer. Cook mixture until beef is tender and sauce is thick, stirring occasionally, about 20 minutes. Remove kaffir lime leaves to serve.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • Beef stock can be added if sauce thickens too much during cooking.
  • Substitute dark brown sugar for palm sugar, if desired.
  • Sauce can be cooked for longer than recommended time if too thin, or add cornstarch and cook an additional 2 to 3 minutes.
