Braised beef shank in hot and sour soup

Nothing possibly better than a tender braised beef meat and a melted bone marrow in a cold and rainy days. Chinese hot and sour soup is one of ancient secrec that belived to booster your imune system and warmed the digestive system through a hard winter. There’s several repices for hot and sour soup available, but i thing this version is really suits for my licking. This hor and sour soup maybe similiar to PINDANG, a hot and sour soup from South Sumatras Province with a little tangy flavour from a sweet soy sauce. PINDANG got the sour from tamarind paste instead of black vinegar, but actually i use both of them within this soup. Another popular braised beef recipe from Indonesia is SEMUR, a tangy sweet soy sauce braised beef with a lot of  spices.

Chinese Hot and Sour Soup Beef Shank with Bone Marrow

When you dealing with beef shank, choose the beef shank that contains more meat attached to the femur bone. Since the braised beef shank meat will shrink in the cooking process. Choose the bone-in shank with similiar size for similiar doness.  Always put the marrow bone facing up to prevent it melted and dissolved during the process. I got the bone-in beef shank in traditional butchers, note that the bone cutting is ir i regular, hehehe. But brought it amazingly cheap, 3 beef shank with sufficient meat still attached and weighted about 4 kilos for 15 USD.

Braised bone-in beef shank is called SUP SUM-SUM SAPI ASAM PEDAS or hot and sour bone marrow soup in Indonesia. Instead of the meat, the focus on the dish is the bone marrow. This soup is popular in North Sumatra  Province. Bone marrow soup or Sup Sum-Sum Sapi usually serve with a large dingking straw or sedotan to suck the bone goodness.

  1. Whoa… your braised beef shank looks so goooood! I have never made it at home, but looking at this recipe, I hope to give it a try one day. It’s so worth the effort at the end…if mine comes out this good!

  2. Just beautiful and delectable!
    Since the ingredients are not what I have commonly in my pantry, unfortunately, it is an extra effort to go to specialized stores to get them.
