I grew up with this dish.
We had an amah in Singapore and she taught my Mum how to make it.
Mum – being English – translated it to feed young kids and then older kids. I know the difference. I had authentic Nasi Goreng in Singapore a few years back. HOT as ….
Her recipe used pork, liver, prawns, omelette, spring onions and rice.
I used to line the the prawns up around the edge of my plate like Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Sailor, Rich Man, Poor Man, Beggar Man, Thief.
Then she’d make me eat all those fishy little beasties :o(
Enter the soy sauce.
Today I marinated the pork in sesame oil, hoisin and soy sauce before frying it.
My boys call it Nazi Goering. That’s what a good education will do to kids :o)
