Cut beef into 4cm-thick cubes. Remove 2 tablespoons ground ingredients, add kerisik and all the shredded and sliced ingredients and marinate beef for 1?2 hours. Set aside.
Put marinated beef and the rest of the ground ingredients (A) and coconut milk into a pot.
Add ingredients (B) and bring to a slow boil. Simmer over a gentle low heat.
Stir mixture every 10 minutes to prevent sticking and burning. Add turmeric leaf.
Continue to simmer for a good 2 hours until meat is tender and gravy is reduced and thick. Season to taste.
