A delicious recipe for pork in soy sauce, called babi ketjap in Dutch. The meat is tender and got a great sweat flavor. Delicious with white rice and a green salad.
I was asked to review the book Bartje Boemboe - Bart Eijken en Jojo Keller.. A Dutch cookbook full of Indonesian recipes. The book is Dutch and got a wide variety of recipes. I wrote the review in Dutch and since it's only available in Dutch I will only put a link to the original review.
I made this delicious dish from the book Bartje Boemboe, because this is one of the dishes that I know and which I have therefore a bit of a comparison. I have adapted the recipe to the ingredients I had in the pantry and didn't add as much peppers as the original recipe, because for our family it seemed a bit too much.
The meat was beautifully tender and the flavor was delicious. You have to stay close to the stew, since burning can happen in a minute. It's a delicious recipe when served with white rice!
