    Combine the ground ginger, lemon grass, kaffir lime leaves and add water. Then add salt, Coconut powder, ground black peppers, olive oil and MSG or alternative. In a mortar add the garlic, soaked paprika peppers, mash until it becomes pasty.  

     Pour mixture over the sliced beef. Then add in the honey. Mix the ingredients well. 

Mix well and skewered the meat on the the bamboo skewers and marinade it for at least an hour.
