I remember cooking this dish on one of my Diari Mangkuk Tingkat (Tiffin Diary) episodes, featuring Sona One, along with other classic Malaysian dishes. The major tip I can share with you when making a good sambal balado is to use the best ingredients. Buy a good quality coconut oil because a little bit goes a long way. Make sure your chilies and onions are fresh and use a pastel and mortar to pound 'tumbuk' your ingredients.
A sweet and savory twist of exotic flavor, beef tenderized with sweet mangoes almost sounds like a heavenly match!

A good piece of beef is vital for this recipe. I get mine from Village Grocer or Ben's Grocer and I always ask for the tenderloin. The tenderloin means its the tender part of the cow. Get the butcher to trim it for you and tie it up into a log (like picture).
