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 ;)
  • 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
  • ½ tsp coriander
  • ½ tsp ginger
  • ½ tsp turmeric
  • 2 tbsp ketjap manis (sweet soya sauce)
  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, ½ tsp coriander, ½ tsp ginger (djahe) and ½ 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.
  5. Add the leeks,cabbage and the cooked rice and the soya sauce. Stir fry till done.
