"I quadruple the recipe, substitute more white onion (actually sweet Vidalia or sweet Texas onions) for the green onion, run the whole batch through the blender, then keep this in the fridge for weeks. Use it on scrambled eggs, french fries, lettuce wraps, whatever. I could eat this stuff on a shoe. So very yummy."

"I know this is an incredibly late reply, but if anyone else has this issue.... If you want to try slicing your own beef (or any sort of meat really) leave it a bit frozen to slice it. I usually take my steak (or chicken or pork or whatever I want sliced) out of the freezer and put it in the microwave to defrost for about half the time I usually would. That way it still has some ice crystals running through it. It is much much easier to slice that way. If your meat came fresh or already thawed, you can also just put it in the freezer for an hour or so for the same effect. If you're putting it in the fridge to thaw, I would say just check it from time to time. It should be kind of squishy, but with obvious ice still inside."

"Just noticed you are in Indonesia. Sorry about the Walmart comment as I don't think it will help you. Good luck finding a good short grain rice in your area."

"If you live near a Walmart, they sell both Botan and Nishiki brands of rice. They are technically medium grain rice, but they are both sold as sushi rice and work well with the recipes here as far as I have been able to tell. They with either be in the rice section or the Asian foods section. Both are grown in California. You can also buy short grain on Amazon, but it's much more expensive that way. I would give either of the ones at Walmart a try first. If Maagchi has a better idea, I'm all ears. Since I live 75 miles from the nearest Asian grocer and 30+ miles from the nearest grocery store at all, I have used quite a few substitutes in the Asian recipes I like (of all kinds... Japanese, Korean, Chinese, Thai). From substituting vegetables I can actually get to finding good subs for spices and such. You do what you can when you live in the middle of nowhere and Amazon is sometimes too expensive for simple things."
