Sop Daging Kacang Merah (Minced Beef with Red Bean Soup)

Leave a comment


I had 2 packs of red beans in my fridge, and I thought of making them into soup would be very nice, especially in the rainy season like this. A bowl of hot soup would be very delicious. We are all like red beans, especially when I cook them with chicken soup, or just simply boil and eat them with chicken or beef steak.

Last time, I decided to cook the read beans with minced beef. The beef broth gave a different taste compared to chicken broth, but they’re all very delicious. It is a very simple and easy dish to make. Children will definitely love this. My son could finish 1 bowl of soup with 1 plate full of rice in a super fast speed.


  • 1 pack of minced beef (about 200 gr)
  • 2 carrots
  • 2 packs of red beans (cook with water and salt first until half cooked)
  • Celeries
  • 1/2 large onion, grated
  • 5 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 tomato, chopped
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • Salt, to taste
  • 1 tsp margarine
  • 1,5 L water
  • Fried Shallot
  • Celery, chopped


  1. Stir fry onion and garlic with margarine until fragrant
  2. Add tomato, stir fry
  3. Add beef, stir fry until the beef change color. From this step, always cook in low heat
  4. Add water
  5. Cook until the beef is tender
  6. Add carrot
  7. Add red bean
  8. Add nutmeg, sugar, salt
  9. Bring to boil until all ingredients are well cooked
  10. Turn off the heat, add fried shallot and celery
  11. Cover the wok for about 5 minutes

Hi there. I'm from Indonesia but now live quite far away from my home country. I love cooking for my family. I learned how to cook for the first time from my mom and I believe that mom's cooking is always the best, and I do hope that my son will feel the same too even though he grows up so fast. I love Indonesian food as I grew up with it, and I promise to myself that my son, although he doesn't live in Indonesia right now, will always like and enjoy authentic Indonesian food. I make this blog so that my family will always remember our togetherness and happy time that we had, are having, and will have when we eat together and have good memories about a mother's love through her dishes. Hopefully these recipes will help other people to make healthy home cooked dishes for their families.
