This is my favorite meal of all time! I got the recipe from my husband, who got it from his mom. She was Dutch-Indonesian and this was one of her family's favorites. It also works with chicken.

WOW! This was AMAZING!! My mom is right off the boat from Holland and this is one of my favorite dishes she made for me as a little girl! What a "keeper"! Thank you so much for sharing such an authentic recipe! LA :-)
