Fried rice with bacon and soybeans

This is my simple version of a nasi goreng (fried rice). I make my fried rice with bacon and soybeans. If we have leftover cooked rice, we keep it for a nasi goreng the next day. This nasi goreng is quickly ready and the ingredients are super simple: onion, garlic, bacon cubes and soybeans.


  • Cooked rice from the day before (about 5 servings)
  • 1 pack bacon cubes (250 grams)
  • Trassi (shrimp paste) block of 1 by 1 cm
  • 1 onion
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 200 grams of soybeans (frozen)
  • Pepper
  • 1 tablespoon sweet soy sauce (sweet)
  • 1 tablespoon ketjap asin (salt)
  1. Place the bacon cubes in the pan and fry gently until a lot of fat has run out.
  2. Add the chopped onions and garlic and stir-fry until the this is tender (2 minutes).
  3. Also add the trassi and sir-fry well.
  4. Add yesterday’s cold rice and stir-fry on medium heat until everything is covered well and lumbs are gone
  5. Add a tablespoon of water if rice is difficult to mix
  6. Add the soy sauce and keep stirring until the rice has a nice brown color.
  7. Add the still frozen soybeans. If you’re using thawed cooked beans, add them at the end, just to warm them up so they stay crunchy.
  8. Taste your nasi goreng. Add some extra oy sauce.

This fried rice with bacon and soybeans is a super easy basic dish. Extra salt is not necessary for this recipe. The bacon cubes and soy sauce provide salt. You also don’t need any oil or butter to start the bumbu.

You can supplement this basic nasi goreng with everything you have left, such as zucchini, leeks, carrots. What ever you like. Selamat makan.
