Nasi goreng is the classic Indonesia fried rice dish (nasi is rice, ‘goreng’ means fried.  Anything with ‘goreng’ in the name is delicious).  This is usually served with seafood or chicken, but a ‘special’ fried rice will have goat satay sticks on the side.   Our hogget, especially the rare breeds, are a close substitute for goat, so we use chops.  These can either be grilled whole, or trimmed and flash fried like sirloin steak to make delicious tender medallions.


  • 2 x chops per person
  • 2 x cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 tbsp kecap manis
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp ground coriander
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • Some fresh ginger
  • Hot chilli powder, or cayenne pepper
  • Sambal, if you can find some
  • 1 chopped Onions or shallots
  • 2 Finely diced Carrots
  • sea salt & black pepper
  • 2 tbsp light olive oil
  • Plain rice (cooked and cooled)
  • 1 fried egg per person


  1. Marinade the chops (or medallions) in soy sauce, pepper and salt for a couple of hours
  2. Rinse and cook the rice and leave to cool (this makes it easier to fry later)
  3. Mix up a seasoning bowl with sesame oil, soy sauce, kecap manis, spices and whatever else you have to hand
  4. Fry the garlic, ginger onions, carrots and whatever other finely diced veggies you fancy
  5. While the onions etc simmer, start to cook the chops as you like them
  6. Throw cold rice into the pan with the veggies, add the seasoning, stir vigorously whilst singing traditional songs and complaining about Jakarta traffic jams (this really adds flavour).
  7. When chops are done, leave them to rest for 5 – 10 mins
  8. Fry your eggs
  9. Spoon the cooked rice and vegetables into small bowls, then invert onto a plate, to make a sort of cake of rice.  Pop the fried egg on top and the chops on the side.
  10. Serve with sambal
  11. Selamat makan!
