My Kitchen, My World: Indonesia

This week My Kitchen, My World is traveling to Indonesia. I have to admit that I'm not really familiar with Indonesian cuisine. In fact, I didn't have the first clue exactly *what* Indonesian cuisine *was*. A quick Google during this busy week and I didn't really turn up anything that I thought the family would actually eat. (The younger kids are not particularly adventurous eaters.) I'm not sure exactly *how* "Indonesian" this one really is, but it is called Indonesian Steak Sandwich so I'm going with it! ;-) Dh enjoyed it. Ds who has taken a PB&J to school every day for the past seven years didn't care for it. Go figure! ::shrug::

For more Indonesian menu ideas, check out the other members of My Kitchen, My World made this week.

I don't know Indonesia food, either, but I am pretty adventurous and I'd try it.

Have a great trip :)

Trust me, it's Indonesian :)

If you're still 'traveling', I just put up a recipe for another typically Indonesian side-dish.

Glad to hear your husband enjoyed it!
