Beef Nasi Goreng

( rating - rate this recipe)
Nasi Goreng is an Indonesian stir-fried rice, commonly a breakfast in Indonesia, but we love it for lunch or dinner too. Great for using up leftovers, including veges, meat and rice. This recipe packs the flavour which is complemented perfectly with the tender stir-fried rump steak. Top with a fried egg sunny side up and grab your chop sticks.

  • Kecap Manis is an Indonesian sweet soy sauce found in your supermarket next to the soy sauce or in the Asian aisle.
  • For an extra kick, don’t remove the seeds of the chilli. This will amp up the spice.
  • Day old cooked rice - All types of fried rice are best made using day old cooked rice that has been refrigerated overnight.
  • Remove seeds of the tomatoes, using just the flesh. This will stop the rice getting too mushy.
  • Reuse left over veges, or any expiring veges that need to be cooked.
