This dish really inspired me. So I did my own spin from the recipe you posted. I added in Urab Sayur (Balinese Coconut Vegetable Salad) as a side.Be sapi base manis....
I'd never made it before. Pretty easy, very tasty.
I would freely tanslate it as balinese sweet beef, from one of my favourite recipe sites "kokkieblanda", but it's in Dutch. They got an English site as well: https://www.asiancook.eu/indonesian/daging/1836-be-sapi-base-manis-beef-in-sweet-sauce
I deviated only a little from the recipe above:
Ingredients for the paste (boemboe). Not the chili's though. Just onion, garlic and pretty old frozen ginger. But chili is the star of this challenge, so they were allowed on the picture

Mixed it all thoroughly and added water to simmer the beef till it was tender.
The smell was pretty amazing!
