Nasi Goreng

This has got to be one of our favourites – have been making it for years! Great way to use up left over pork.
Nasi Goreng
2 cups rice
3 cups water
1 teaspoon salt
1 large onion, diced
1 teaspoon garlic powder
3 tablespoons cooking oil
1 – 1 1/2 cups diced cooked pork
1/4 cup finely diced ham or bacon or bacon bits
1/2 teaspoon sage
1/2 teaspoon ginger powder
1/4 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon coriander
1/ 8 teaspoon turmeric
Cook the rice with 3 cups water and 1 teaspoon salt.  It is s common to make the rice the day before or to use left over rice.
Fry onion and garlic and oil together in heavy frying pan or wok. Add meat and spices.
Fry 5 minutes.  Add soy sauce a tablespoon or 2 depending on how you like it.
Mix in the rice and fry it altogether. 

In a separate pan make an omelet.  I use about 8-10 eggs for 6 adults.  Mix eggs with 1-2 tablespoons milk, green onion (optional), salt and pepper.  Pour into greased and heated frying pan.  Pull the sides in with a fork as shown in picture.


Flip and fry on other side.  Cut up and place over Nasi Goreng.

If you wish to have Kroepoek with it, fry that up before you start.  You can purchase Kroepoek in the Oriental Stores or the Dutch stores.  Serve with sliced fresh cucumber, Kroepoek and a salad if you like. We like sambal oelek on our rice to give it some “heat”.
