This recipe is one of my adopted recipes. I finally made it and it is really a full flavored dish. It does require a lot of prep but is so worth it. The intro from the psoting chef: "This is one of the most popular and well known Indonesian rice dishes. I have tried many versions and I always come back to this one. Chicken can be substituted for the shrimp."

  2. To reserved bacon fat, add red onion, celery, green onions, carrot, garlic and mushrooms- saute until tender.

Delicious! Wonderful blend of flavors and a great looking dish as well that we really enjoyed using chicken as the meat.

This recipe ROCKS!! It requires a lot of prep work, but it's so well worth the effort. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a great Indonesian meal. Oh, and to completely authenticate the experience, serve this with a side of krupuk (prawn crackers). Thanks so much for sharing =)
