Chinese babi pangang, crispy pieces of meat with a delicious sweet sauce, like you can get at a take out at the Dutch Chinese. Fastfood, homemade and delicious.
Like the Chinese omelette with sauce that I made in the context of my bucket list last week, I had another recipe I’d love to make at that list. A Chinese Babi Pangang recipe, with crispy pieces of meat with a delicious sweet sauce, which you can obtain from the Chinese. A kind of fast food so. Is it also a fast food if you make it yourself? In terms of preparation it certainly is, because you don’t have that much activity. Just to get that crispy on the Babi Pangang, you should grill for half an hour. But then you do have a slimmer version than the Chinese, where they fry the Babi Pangang. And drive up and down to the Chinese, that takes half an hour to, right?
Babi Pangang is an Indonesian recipe, which literally means grilled pork. That’s how it’s often prepared in Indonesia is. Over a wood fire pork it’s grilled until done. In the Netherlands usually bacon pork steaks are used and sometimes gammon steak are used in the preparation of the Babi Pangang. Which are first baked and then deep fried. The meat is topped with a sweet and sour sauce.
