Daging Bakar (Roasted turmeric beef) and Air Asam, 2nd Merderka meal

I’m planning to cook Tunku’s (Father of Malaysia) favourite dishes in conjunction to this Merderka (Independence) month. The 1st Merderka meal “ Ayam Golek” was dedicated to Rebecca a.k.a Chow and Chatter. This is the 2nd Merderka meal, Daging Bakar (roasted turmeric beef) and Air Asam (red chili and lime dipping sauce), these are Tunku’s favourite dish too.
