Amidst all the claypot stalls at Alexandra Village Food Centre (including the famous claypot laksa), I was attracted to a stall which sold “fire-pot stew beef”. Behind the stall were two old ladies, busying preparing beef dishes of stew beef rice, stew beef noodles and the most popular stew beef and tendon fire pot.
The stew beef fire pot had generous portions, with tenderness of the beef pieces will remain in your memory after they melt in your mouth. What I really like are the pieces of chunky but soft carrot beneath which gave the gravy a sweet aftertaste. You can pour the gravy over rice or mee kia which will make it a simple but satisfying meal.
Be careful of your shirt and hair though, as the fire under the pot keeps burning, and burning.
