    Good sayur! The changes I made were: using sambal instead of chilies, omitting the shrimp paste since I do not eat shrimps, using taotjo (black bean sauce, rather salty, used 1 tablespoon) instead of salt and making it vegetarian by using one can (rinsed and drained) of chickpeas, thus omitting the beef.<br/>It turned out very well and was wonderful over rice, just enough heat and a great combination of spices. Can also report that it freezes well.<br/>Thanks for posting.
