Babi Masak Kecap

Another recipe I tried last week from the Green Mangoes and Lemon Grass with slightly modification and substitution. The original recipe called for 1 1/2 cup of water, I only use 1/2 cup and mine has more sauce than the one showed in the recipe... hmm not sure why.


  • 6 dried chilies
  • 8 shallots
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 2in ginger
  • 1 tsp balacan powder
  • 11/4lb pork cut into cube
  • 3 tbsp sweet dark soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • 3 tbsp oil
  • Salt to taste


  • Process chillies, shallots, garlic, ginger in a food processor until smooth paste
  • Heat oil in a pan, add chili paste and balancan powder and stir fry over low-medium heat until fragrant.
  • Add in pork and stir fry over medium heat until it changed color. About 5 minutes.
  • Add soy sauce, water and lime juice. Bring to boil. Cover with lid and let it simmer over low heat. Stirring occasionally. Cook until pork is tender and the sauce has thickened.
  • Add salt to taste.
