  • This is not how you make daging smoor. Missing a lot of ingrediënts and even hoe to cook it. It’s an Indonesian dish. I make this a lot, and vegen made properly it is lush

    • I’m sure there are different ways to make daging smoor, Just like there are different ways to make hamburgers. As far I am concerned, no recipe is written in stone. Since you make “your” daging smoor different then mine, please share. A picture included would be nice. Thanks for your sharing.

  • I love this recipe and even more importantly, my teenage sons love it. I add extra sambal and sometimes a teaspoon of regular soy sauce after testing if the beef is too sweet. We tend to like spicy things in our house. Many thanks for sharing it.
