Egg Noodles in Spicy Sweet Potato Gravy



My take on the Malaysian Mee Rebus





Spicy Sweet Potato Gravy

1 small butternut squash, boiled and mashed
2 medium sweet potatoes, boiled and mashed
500g beef, cubed
1 cinnamon bark
2 star anise
5 cloves  
4 garlic, finely diced
1 small knob fresh ginger, finely grated 
1/2 cup fried shallots
2 lemongrass 
1 cup roasted peanuts
1/4 cup dried shrimp
3 tbsp curry powder
1 tbsp cayenne pepper
1/4 cup fermented soy bean paste 
1 cup chopped tomatoes 
vegetable stock, enough to make the gravy
tamarind paste 
salt and sugar, to taste





Chuck everything into a slow cooker and hope for the best!!!
