Mi Godhog Djawa Daging sapi ( Javanese beef Noodle stew )

This winter I crave a lot of Indonesian food. Probably because mostly Indonesian food are spicy and warm (make my feel warm also ^_^ ) .. but whatever it is, one reason is because I'm far away from my homeland and only these foods (at least) can be panacea of longing my homeland.
Mi godhog Djawa or noodle stew from Java (my home), consisting of noodles and vegetables in beef or chicken stew. With the shrimp-scented make this meal become one of favorite for each member of my family in Indonesia.

- 1 medium size carrot. Cut into matchsticks.
- Cabbage finely chopped, about 2 handfuls.
- Approximately 1 handful bean sprouts.

- If you can find green mustard leaves you can add that also- cut roughly (as original one in Java)
- Coriander/ parsley leaves to taste. Chop roughly.

  1. I'm a Malaysian living in Scotland. We share very similar food being neighbouring countries back home. Love you noodle dish. I agree with you that our food is good for the cold winter. I have been cooking soup everyday to keep warm. Hope you have a wonderful day. MaryMoh at http://www.keeplearningkeepsmiling.com
