Babi Pangang

Jan 4, 2015 by

Babi Pangang is my favorite dish on the menu of a Chinesae/Indonesian Restaurant. It took me a long time to figure out how to get the crunchy meat. I read somewhere else that the Chinese/Indonesian Restaurants were deep frying the meat.  Babi Pangang does have many variations in the Netherlands as hamburgers and pizza’s do in America. This is my own variation, with the biggest difference that I add chili paste (sambal oelek). Babi Pangang is supposed to be a sweet spiced dish, not hot. The ginger, garlic and lemon juice are also often left out. Serve with rice and an Indonesian vegetable dish Atjar Tjampoer or as part of a Rijsttafel. Do use shoulder chops, you will need that bit of fat.

Ingredients
  • Ingredients:
For the meat:
  • 1 onion, chopped as finely as possible
  • 1 tbsp fresh grated ginger
  • 2 garlic cloves crushed
  • 4 tbsp sweet soy sauce (ketjap Manis)
  • 2 tbsp hoisin sauce
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp sambal oelek
  • 1 tbsp lemons or lime juice
  • 2 lbs thick boneless pork shoulder chops.
  • Atjar Tjampoer
For the Babi Pangang Sauce:
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • ½ small onion minced fine
  • 1 clove garlic minced fine
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste
  • 3 tbsp ketchup
  • 3 tbsp sweet chili sauce
  • 4 tbsp lemon juice
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch diluted with 2 tbsp water

 

Instructions
  1. Mince the onion ginger, and garlic. Add the ketjap manis (sweet soya sauce), hoisin sauce, sugar, sambal and lemon juice.
  2. Put the meat in a plastic ziploc bag and add the marinade.Close tightly and put in the refrigerator. Marinate for a minimum of 2 hours or, (preferred) leave it overnight.
  3. Remove from the refrigerator and put in a pot. Add enough chicken broth to cover the meat. Simmer for about 1 hour.
  4. While the meat is simmering you make the Babi Pangang sauce. Mince the onion. Put in a pot 1 tbsp of oil add the onion and garlic. When translucent add 1 tbsp tomato paste. Cook for a minute or so then you add the 2 cups of chicken broth. 1 tbsp ginger and the ketchup.
  5. Then add the sweet chili sauce you can find that in the oriental section of any grocery store. I even can find the sambal oelek in the oriental section now :). Now add the lemon juice and the brown sugar. Cook and stir so the sugar can dissolve. To thicken the sauce add the diluted cornstarch.
  6. After the meat has been cooked take it out of the liquid and discard the liquid. Dry the meat, it has to be dry before you deep fry the meat. Before I used to put the meat raw under the broiler which was okay, but it took to long and I never was able to get the crunchy meat what you get with Babi Pangang. The answer is you have to deep fry the chops 375 F for about 2-3 minutes, watch them because you don’t want to burn them to a charcoal crisp. Slice the meat in strips and serve over cooked rice,  Atjar Tjampoer and dredge in the Babi Pangang Sauce.

Nasi Goreng

Jul 25, 2013 by

Rijsttafel is a Dutch word for an Indonesian-style banquet. The word “rijsttafel” means “rice table,”. Nasi Goreng is the basic for a “rijst tafel” you can add several dishes to this dish, like sate, kroepoek, a fried egg, atjar tjampoer, pisang goreng, gado gado, Sambal telur.

I usually make Nasi Goreng of leftover meat and previously cooked rice. I prefer Jasmine rice but that’s totally up to you. Combining the meat with some veggies this makes a wonderful dish. If you don’t have pre-cooked rice cook it and and let it cool off in the refrigerator. And if you don’t have leftover meat use fresh meat 😉

Ingredients

leftover meat
4 strips bacon
2 cups rice cooked
1 leek
2 cups of shredded cabbage
1 onion
1 tbsp garlic
1 tbsp sambal oelek
1 tbsp cumin
1/2 tsp coriander
1/2 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp turmeric
2 tbsp ketjap manis (sweet soya sauce)

Instructions

1.  The picture below I used the leftover steak and some chicken, cut them up to little pieces.

2. Cut up the leek and rinse well. If you don’t rinse the leek well you may have some sand in your Nasi Goreng and that is one thing you don’t want. Cut up the onion and bacon. Combine 1 tbsp cumin, 1/2 tsp coriander, 1/2 tsp ginger (djahe) and 1/2 tsp turmeric (koenjit) in a small bowl. Set aside.

3. Put some olive oil in the wok or skillet and add the cutup meat and bacon, fry till the bacon is pretty much done.

4. Then add the onion, garlic, 1 tbsp sambal oelek and the bowl of seasoning.

Add the leeks,cabbage and the cooked rice and the soya sauce. Stir fry till done.

Foo Young Hai (Indonesian, Dutch)

May 12, 2012 by

Foo Young Hai

I could not find a lot about the history of Foo Yong Hai, but I believe it must have had traveled through a long and winding path to become the way it is now. But Nevertheless during its spread in Western Europe Foo Young Hai has gradually changed and was adapted as a more western style omelet with fillings inside, while in Canton, the standard way of cooking fried Foo Yong eggs is actually mix the ingredients (Cantonese BBQ pork strips and other vegetables) with the beaten egg yolk before frying. Apart from that, I found out that “hai” means crab. The Foo Yong Hai that I know mostly uses prawns, shrimps or chicken. Either way it’s a delicious dish. In this recipe I used chicken.

Ingredients

6 eggs
4 skinless boneless chicken thighs
2 leeks
1 tray of mushrooms
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 tsp pepper
For the foo young hai sauce:

4 cups bouillon (you can make that by boiling the chicken in water and add a bouillon cube)
1 cup of tomato ketchup
1/3 cup of sugar
6 tbsp ketjap manis (sweet soya sauce)
2 tsp ginger
2 cups cooked rice.

Instructions

1.  First start making the Foo Young Hai Sauce. Cook the chicken in a pot with water, add 1 chicken bouillon cube. Boil till the chicken is done. Take the chicken out then add the tomato ketchup, sweet soya sauce, sugar and ginger to the 4 cups of broth. Add diluted cornstarch to make the sauce thick. You can freeze the sauce before you add the diluted cornstarch.

2. Shredd the chicken. Cut the leeks in rings and rinse with water to get all the sand out. Cut up the mushrooms. Put some olive oil in a hot skillet, add the leeks, mushrooms, shredded chicken and pepper and salt.

3. Now it’s time to make the omelet. Beat the eggs. The skillet has to be hot, add some olive oil then pour in the egg mixture. Pull on the side so the egg mixture can run under it. Do that all around. When the omelet is nearly done, add on one side the vegetable meat mixture, then flip the opposide over the meat vegatable mixture. Put the omelet on some cooked rice and pour the babi pangang sauce over your omelet.

Atjar Tjampoer (Indonesian)

Apr 21, 2012 by

Atjar Tjampoer is an Indonesian sweet and sour dish. As the word Tjampoer (mixed) already says Atjar Tjampoer is a mixed pickled vegetable dish. The fresh flavor of Atjar is a good combination with spicy dishes. It is delicious with Nasi or Bahmi, satay and Babi Pangang, and as well with other dishes, like a hot dog 😉

In the US they have something similar which is called chow chow. The difference is the seasonings. With chow chow mustard seeds and celery seeds are used.

Ingredients

4 cups shredded cabbage
2 cups shredded carrots
3 cups bean sprouts
3 green onions
1/2 English Cucumber
1/2 Bell Pepper
2 tbsp crushed garlic
2 tsp Sambal Oelek
3 tsp ginger
3 tsp turmeric
1 -1/2 cups white vinegar
1 cup sugar
pinch of salt

Instructions

1.  You can buy the cabbage and carrots already shredded, or shred it yourself. Cut up the green onions and Bell Pepper. Cut the cucumber in half and take the seeds out and cut in small pieces.

2.   Put water in a pot and add a pinch of salt. When the water comes to a boil add the shredded cabbage and carrots. Cook for 5 minutes. Take the cabbage and carrots out and let it drain in the strainer. Add the bean sprouts to the boiling water and boil for 3 minutes. Take them out and add to the strainer. Then add the green vegetables (green onions, bell pepper and the cucumber) to the boiling water also boil for 2 min. Add them on top of all the other vegetables.

3.   Heat the sunflower oil in a pan. Fry the Sambal Oelek, garlic, turmeric and ginger for 2 minutes. Add the vinegar and sugar; stir till the sugar is dissolved. Add all the vegetables boil softly for 2 minutes. Put in a bowl and let cool.

4. You can also preserve the Atjar, the dishwasher is fine for the jars; especially if it has a “sanitize” cycle. I get that going while I’m preparing everything else, so it’s done by the time I’m ready to fill the jars. Put the hot vegetables in sterilized screw-lid jars (metal lids with a ‘dome’ in the middle are handy) Screw the lids on. Place jars upside down until cooled completely the ‘dome’ in the lid will be down, this is to check if the jar closed well. Can be kept for at least a year store in a dark place to avoid having the color goes away.
