Indonesian style fried rice using leftover roast beef….. Dinner in less than 30 minutes!
Went to the zoo today. Georgia was obsessed with the giraffes. Sam just wanted to see a funny monkey eating a banana. Didn’t realise you can book in and get to actually feed the giraffes from the top of this special tower, will have to do that with Georgia next time. Sadly we didn’t see any monkeys eating bananas. Finished the trip with the penguin enclosure but they weren’t being funny today, all just chilling in their little caves.
I made this nasi goreng with brown rice this time and it tasted amazing! Think I preferred the roast beef in it’s leftover’s state than the roast the night before……. This could also be made with leftover pork or chicken.
4 shallots, halved
2 cloves garlic, halved
1 lemongrass stalk, bruised, roughly chopped
½ tsp dried shrimp paste
6 tbsp rice bran oil (or olive oil)
200g raw prawns, peeled
300g leftover beef, thinly sliced
3 cups brown rice, cooked and cooled
3 spring onions, thinly sliced
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 cucumber, thinly sliced
Whisk eggs in a bowl and season with salt and pepper. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a frypan over low heat. Pour in half the egg to make an omelette, set aside to cool. Repeat with remaining egg. Once cooled roll up and cut into strips.
Place shallots, garlic, lemongrass and shrimp paste into a food processor and blitz to a fine paste.
In a wok or large fry pan, heat 3 tbsp oil over med heat. Add the paste and cook 1-2 minutes until aromatic. Add the prawns and beef, then stir fry until prawns are cooked through. Add 2 tbsp oil and stir through rice, spring onion and soy sauce.
Serve topped with omelette and cucumber.
