NOTES: * A tasty Indonesian dish The leftovers are great next day, hot or cold. Yield: serves 4. * Editor's note: this recipe is unique in the history of alt. gourmand in that virtually none of the ingredients is available in an ordinary North American grocery store. However, with a certain amount of difficulty I was able to find all of the ingredients in specialty food stores nearby (though admittedly I live in a wonderland of ethnic grocery stores and specialty markets.) The recipe is so delicious that it's worth including even though most readers will not be able to find the ingredients to make it. North Americans can read ground beef for mince beef and bacon for middle bacon. You can make an interesting substitute for this dish by using Mexican seasonings instead of Indonesian; the flavor will not be at all authentic but some of the spirit is preserved.
