For the marinade, use a pestle and mortar or spice grinder to grind the black pepper, cloves and cinnamon to a fine powder. Put into a large mixing bowl along with the ginger, garlic, malt vinegar and chilli powder. Add the beef, mix really well and marinate for 2-3 hours or overnight.
Put the beef and any marinade liquid into a large pan and cook without any oil for 35-40 minutes, stirring often as the meat seals and the moisture evaporates. Turn the heat off while you char the onions.
Heat the oil in a large wok or frying pan over a medium heat. Fry the green chillies for a few seconds. Add the onions and cook for 14-15 minutes or until charred and soft. Add the turmeric and mix well. Add the beef and sugar, and season. Cook for 5 minutes until the beef is piping hot. Stir through the coriander and lime juice before serving.
