I really, really liked this. I wondered just what so little sambal oelek would add, but it added a very pleasant warm undertone to the meat. Katjap manis, however it's spelled, is a new ingredient for me. I will need to find other recipes to use it in. However, I have some thoughts on what I would do differently next time. I'd brown in the skillet, but then transfer everything to a pot. The liquid evaporated too quickly in the skillet because of the greater surface area, and the meat was not as tender as I would have liked. I had cut my meat into 1/2 in. cubes, and they were not quite tender enough before the liquid was almost evaporated.
