Fusion Taste Team Challenge: Malaysia

By | October 25, 2011

This week we’re visiting Malaysia and using Malaysian Chilli Coconut sauce.  Last time around I cooked Ayam Percik, which was chicken marinated overnight in the sauce.  This time I’ve cooked stir-fry beef with cucumber, served with noodles.


  • 350g steak, cut against the grain into 1/4-inch-thick slices
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 medium onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 pepper , thinly sliced
  • 100g cucumber, cut into chunks
  • 2 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoon of soya sauce
  • 1 bottle WORLDFOODS Malaysian Chili Coconut Dipping sauce


  1. Heat sesame oil in a wok over high heat. Add the beef in one layer and allow it to sear on one side for 1 minute.
  2. Stir-fry for another 2 minutes, until the outside is no longer red but the beef is not yet cooked through. Remove from the wok and set aside.
  3. In the same wok, add the garlic, onions,cucumbers and peppers and stir-fry until aromatic, about 1 to 2 minutes. Return the beef to the wok.
  4. Add WORLDFOODS Malaysian Chili Coconut sauce and soya sauce, stir well to coat.
  5. Transfer to a large plate and serve hot with noodles or rice.

I did enjoy this dish but admit it’s not one of my favourites.  I’m not a huge coconut fan but my husband and the toddler both really liked it so it is a dish I’d cook again.

The sauce wasn’t too hot which was good for the toddler, although she is quite used to fairly spicy dishes!  If you fancied adding a bit more heat to it, a chilli or two would be good.

After trying this sauce with chicken and beef, I’d now like to try it with prawns.  Coconut prawns do sound good!

I made the chicken marinade, but this looks so yummy. I think I’ll have to give this one a go. Thanks xx

Ooh I too made the chicken dish but this looks really good, may have to try this too. The chicken was very hot and spicy, possibly as it was marinaded overnight.
