Sweet! An Indonesian variety I’ve not tried! I wish there were more that I could get around here. I rarely get any from Indonesia – one reader sent a couple of packages a while back full of all sorts of wonderful varieties – maybe someone will again? I hope so! Let’s check out this one from Mie Sedaap.
Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, boil noodle in 400ml water for 3 minutes. Add seasonings to a bowl while bolling. Add noodles and water to bowl and combine. Enjoy!
The noodle block.
A dual sachet of dry seasonings.
Chilli powder atop soup base powder.
A seasoned oil sachet.
Has a beef scent.
The solid ingredients sachet.
Little imitation beef ball and vegetables.
Finished. Added Great Wall beef balls, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, white onion and coriander. The noodles are standard instant gauge and chew – good stuff. The broth has a very strong stewed beef kind of flavor to it which also had a nice oiliness. The vegetables hydrated well. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8998866200929.
Sweet! Two days in a row of Indonesian delicacy! Today we have one with mention of Sambal in the title. Sambal equals spicy! Should be good!
Okay so clockwise from the top left we have the delicious fried onions that will be sprinkled on the finished product, dry powdered seasoning known as bumbu, a thick sweet black soy sauce called kecap manis, a chili sauce which usually is manis pedas but I think is where the sambal seasoning is contained, and finally some seasoned oil.
Some crazy looking stuff here! The seasoned oil is the opaque on top top left, then the chili sauce and then the soy sauce with the powder bumbu at the bottom.
Click image to enlarge. The finished product with the nice little bots of fried onion sprinkled. This is what I was expecting yesterday – noodles are cooked and then drained and stirred on a bowl with the seasonings. So yeah this is some great stuff! Some spiciness going on that’s for sure! The onion was as advertised – delicious! Impressive! 4.25 out of 5.0 stars! Get it here.
