Grilled Beef Meatball with Sweet and Spicy Soysauce

This time I’ll try to post one of favourite grilled dish in Indonesia, grilled meatball. Indonesian people love meatball, traditionally it’s cooked as a soup served with beef broth, tofu and some beef dumplings. Lately, many people improvise this meatball recipe and start to grill it. Here is one that I used to cook:
INGREDIENTS
Instant beef meatball 2 cloves garlic 2 cloves of candle nut ½ tablespoons coriander powder ¼ tablespoons pepper Salt Sweet soy sauce Olive oil Skewer 
DIRECTIONS
Slices meatball into 2 pieces
Preheat olive oil in fry pan. Stir-fry chopped garlic and candle nut then add beef meatball and half cup of water. Add coriander powder, pepper, salt and sweet sauce then cooked until the water reduced.
Put the beef meatball in skewer.
Preheat the grill for medium heat.
Grill the skewered beef meatball for 3 minuted each side or until grill marks appears.
Serve with rice or fried potatoes.
Happy grilling :)

The Foodie Blogroll Publisher Program

Couple days ago I received email from Foodie Blogroll which inform about their new publisher program. Based on their explanation, it's quite attractive compared to others. Using CPM scheme, I think it's good for those who has huge traffic. We just don't have to wait for an uniqeu hit to their ad/banners to get paid.

For me, the most interesting about this new publisher program is they offer refferal fees if we could lead other blogger to join this program. Beside they also count hit from non US visitor to our blog. Quite good, isn't it? Well, currently I'm waiting for their approval to my submission, hopefully they'll approved me :)

For more details just visit to their publisher page directly.

The most expensive beef ever...

It is believed that the most expensive beef is the Wagyu beef. Originally, the beef are harvested from wagyu cattle which breed in Kobe, Japan. In Kobe, the cattle get special treatments from the farmer. Everiday the cattle are fed with beer, massaged with sake, brushed to set their fur, and fed in grain fedder.

Due to the popularity of wagyu/kobe beef in United States and Europe, its make people try to duplicate the beef. They crossbred the domestically-raised wagyu with Angus cattle. They also apply some of Kobe traditiosn, like fed their cattle with beer and massaged with sake. However, there's still differences between the original Kobe beef and "Kobe style" beef. Some said that the "Kobe style" beef have darker meat and a bolder flavor.
