It is a very traditional dish, but I always make it up as I go, to the horror of my Indonesian mother in law, haha "nooo, no lemon grass....."
suus, you are making me very hungry. that sounds great!! recipe please?
and jbib, do you have a recipe for the beans and carne asada?
last night i made pork tenderloins with apples and sweet onions. i used cider this time instead of white wine, and it really added something. will do it this way from now on.
btw, ronjohn sent me a 6 pack of his homemade cider. it was fantastic. no i didn't use it to cook tonight. it's being treated like jw blue label or gm cent cinquanteniere in my house. the taste was nice and light for hard apple cider (not too acidic), the alcohol content perfect, slightly more than a beer without being noticable on the palate, and the fizz was perfect, like champagne.
ronjohn is a brewing god!!!!
