This recipe was easy and delicious! I used half of a large jalapeno for the capsicum and would probably use a whole one next time for a bit more heat. I also did not have the ketjap manis so I skipped it. I've never used ketjap manis before but think it might add a bit more depth of flavor next time. If you are going to make this recipe I would probably recommend not adding the meat until you are just about ready to serve as it will continue to cook when you take it off the heat. The porterhouse was amazingly tender. Thanks Amanda!
Really easy and very, very tasty! I particularly enjoyed the slight hint of warmth from the chilli oil. I made this with udon noodles and will probably try it with fresh flat rice noodles next time - great recipe, thanks for posting!
