This is an Indonesian-inspired dish from Jaden's upcoming Steamy Kitchen cookbook.
It's ground pork cooked with kecap manis (sweet soy sauce) and served with potato chips. Potato chips! Genius.
I felt the same curiosity and surprise when I first heard about lomo saltado, a Peruvian beef stir-fry with French fries, and thit bo xao voi khoai tay chien, a Vietnamese beef stir-fry also with French fries.
In this case, I tried "oven-frying" the chips, but they didn't turn out too crisp. They were more like round fries than chips. As with the two stir-fries mentioned, we, of course, enjoyed this dish with white rice.
