Tempe Bacem (Sweet Taste Tempe / Tempeh)

When I was in college, Tempeh Bacem is my substitute for meat.
The taste is Sweet, Thick, and Delicious... Yummy...

  • 7 oz Indonesian Cuisines tempeh, sliced
  • 1 stem (stalk) of lemon grass, crushed/smashed flat
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1/2 inch of fresh galanga, crushed/smashed flat
  • 2 1/2 cups of tap water
  • 1/2 tsp ground coriander
  • 1/2 medium size red onion, chopped fine
  • 1 medium size clove of garlic, crushed/smashed flat
  • 1 tsp of salt
  • 2 tbs of brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp of coconut powder
  • 1 tsp of "sambal oelek" (coarse red chili sauce), if you like it sweet and "hot".
How to prepare them:
  1. Mix all ingredients.
  2. Slow cook them on medium heat untill most of the "bumbu" solution (mixture of condiment) is absorbed by the tempeh
  3. Stir occasionally
  4. Finally, fry the tempeh submerged in sufficient oil on medium-high heat until the color of the tempe changes to light brown, but the tempe is not crispy.
  5. Serve warm. Enjoy!
