I am going to share with you today, is my simple version of Java Rice. Inspired by Chef Dino Ferrari of Del Monte Kitchenomics.
Java Rice has nothing to do with the place Java in Indonesia, weird? Oh no! I think that is normal like Cuban Rice and that has nothing to with Cuba. Isn't it funny? Well, the weird naming of foods just confuses us with regards to place of origin.
Why Java Rice is color yellow? Because of the Ingredient Turmeric powder, some recipes are mixing with Anatto or Cayenne powder.
For my approach I used Del Monte Tomato Sauce Original style to make my simple Java Rice color yellow. Not only for flavoring, we all know that tomato is very rich in Vitamin C.
Del Monte Tomato Sauce original style claims to be 100% natural flavor to all our recipes. It is made with no artificial flavors and preservatives.
Here are the Ingredients:
3 cups of cooked rice
2 gloves garlic, minced
1 small onion, chopped
1 small carrot, diced
3 tbsp of green peas, cooked
3 tbsp of Del Monte Tomato Sauce original style
3 tbsp of Del Monte Whole Kernel corn
1 tbsp butter
1/2 tsp black pepper
Salt to taste
Pork Barbecue for toppings
For Pork Barbecue, I used only a few pounds of pork meat, soaked for only 10 to 20 minutes with 1 tbsp of Del Monte Tomato sauce, 2 tsp of soy sauce a dash of black pepper, then fry slowly until pork is well done. And set aside.
For Java Rice, the usual, heat the pan, put the butter and sautee the onion, wait until golden brown and follow garlic. Stir. Add the carrots, green peas and corn, stir for 2 minutes.
Then next is my secret, the Del Monte Tomato Sauce original style, again, stir slowly and follow the cooked rice, stir until the tomato sauce is evenly mixed. Add black pepper and salt to taste.
When serving top with pork barbecue.
And you can pair Java Rice with Fried Chicken or Chicken Barbecue.
I am hungry, I am drooling now.
See you on my next simple recipe.
I hope you like my simple Java Rice.
