Iga Penyet

{{totalReview}}
Iga Penyet is a delicious Indonesian dish which consists of fried beef ribs served with spicy chili sauce. This beefy delight was first popular in the Arekan region of East Java, but has now spread as a crowd favorite throughout Indonesia. Tender beef is twice cooked, and tossed in fiery chilies in the second round to loosen up all that meat so they can be coated evenly with the savory sambal. Squeeze a lime or two over it before serving to bring out all those yummy flavors!
