Asian dishes: Nasi goreng

Asian dishes - Nasi goreng

Nasi Goreng is a famous Indonesian beef fried rice. This recipe was shared to me by my uncle who worked in Indonesia for a year.  He said it was good so I thought I should give it a try.

Nasi Goreng tastes different from all the fried rice I have made before. It is a simple Asian dish but it tastes good. The spices used for this recipe helps bring out the flavor of the ground beef.  It has a little sour taste from Tabasco sauce and a little sweetness from oyster sauce.

Overall, I would rate it 4 out of 5.  It does not have that "WOW" taste but it is definitely worth trying if you are up to eating a new different tasting dish.  You can also try adding 1 more tablespoon of oyster sauce, spring onions and sprinkle of salt to make it more tasty.
