Simple Salty Pork (Babi Kecap)

This recipe belongs to my mother as she always made this when I was back home in Indonesia. It is so simple, but delicious! It feels home. I always love the combination of ginger and garlic; the spiciness of the ginger keeps my body warm and the fragrance of ginger makes me want to eat more… This simple dish can be done in a very short time, the only work needs to be done is slicing the pork. Serve it with jasmine rice while it’s hot and you will be satisfied. Simple yet yummy. Enjoy!

Servings: 2

Total time: 15 minutes


400 g          Tenderloin pork, sliced into small cubes

2                 Garlic, minced

2 cm           Ginger, sliced thin or grated (or about 2 tsp)

1/4 cup      Dark soy sauce

2 tbsp         Vegetable oil


  • Pre-heat work/pan in high-heat, add in ginger and garlic, stir for a few second until it’s fragrant.
  • Add in the pork, cook for about 5-6 minutes until it’s cooked and the juice has slightly reduced.
  • Pour in the soy sauce, cook in medium heat for another minute or two until the sauce has absorbed.
  • Tadaaaa…. Salty pork is ready to be served with rice. (I also cook Cap chay – mixed vegetables to pair with this dish)
