W/Salaam, sorry but I have not heard of vinegar meat before. :(

Salaam, i dont have a pressure cooker so approx how long would i boil the steak for????

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

W/Salaam, hard to estimate, depends on the cut of steak, could take between 30-45 minutes.

Will i be using the same amout of water or more?

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

You may need a bit more water when using an open pan, just keep checking on the meat and add if needed.

Is tomato paste tomato purée or ketchup?

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

Puree. :)

Can we make tomato paste at home since i cannot buy it right now and i'm making this dish for dinner tonight?

Peel tomatoes and blend then boil without any water until it thickens in consistency and no water is left.

by rump steak u mean beef undercut???

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

Rump is not as tender as undercut, but you could use undercut if you want.

Assalamualaikum Fauzia
What can I substitute steak with?

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

W/Salaam, any good cut of beef will work.

Can I use this recipe with chicken? Will it be as flavourful as beef.

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

Yes you can chicken, the flavour will be great but not as good as beef.

In case of chickn will the first step of boiling remain the same?

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

No, with chicken there will be no need to boil first as chicken cooks very first.
