Nasi Rawon (Traditional Indonesian Beef Soup)

This recipe is a traditional dish from East Java. With a nutty flavour and deep black colour from the use of Keluak nut, this beef stew style dish is rich in flavours.

Best enjoyed with rice, this is the perfect hearty meal on those cold winter days although, this is a popular breakfast dish with many Indonesian locals.
