Be Celeng Base Manis (Pork In Sweet Soya Sauce)

Be Celeng Base Manis (Pork In Sweet Soya Sauce)

Recipe source : Adapted from The Food of Bali

Sweet soya sauce or kicap manis is popularly used in Malay and Indonesian cuisines. I often buy ayam masak kicap ( chicken in soy sauce ) from Malay vendors selling nasi campur ( mixed rice ). I like the tinge of sweetness in the soy sauce. 

So when I came across this recipe as I browsed through the internet for Indonesian food recipes,  I bookmarked this to try out. All you need is a few basic ingredients. The cooking style is almost effortless. 

It was good!. My son, YS  and I, love pork dishes. We polished off this sweet porky dish including the gravy with lots of hot steaming rice. Yum!


1 tbsp cooking oil    ( original recipe used coconut oil )
3 shallots, peeled and sliced
2 cloves garlic, peeled and sliced
300g boneless pork leg or pork shoulder, cut into 3/4 inch cubes
4cm piece of ginger, sliced
2 tbsp kicap manis ( sweet soya sauce)
1 tbsp soy sauce
1/2 tsp black peppercorn, crushed
1 cup chicken stock
4 chilli padi (bird's eye chilli)

 Black peppercorns

 Sweet soya sauce or kicap manis

2.  Add pork and ginger, continue to saute for 2 more minutes over high heat. Add sweet and salty soy sauces, chilli and crushed black peppercorns. Continue to saute for one minute.
3.  Pour in chicken stock and simmer over medium heat for about 45 minutes or until the meat is tender. If the meat becomes too dry during cooking, add a little more chicken stock.

  2. Hi Alice,

    Thanks for bringing it to my attention. Yes, wild boar meat is tougher, more fragrant and very lean. Haven't eaten it in years.

  3. 3 Studies SHOW Why Coconut Oil Kills Waist Fat.

    This means that you literally get rid of fat by eating coconut fat (including coconut milk, coconut cream and coconut oil).

    These 3 studies from large medicinal journals are sure to turn the traditional nutrition world upside down!
