Dendeng Lambok

This recipe originally from my mother in law. I ate for the first time in my parents in law home. My mom in law originally from Minang so it is so common Minang food served in dining table. She said, this dish was easy peasy to make. I was told the ingredient and the direction without any measurement. Since my “measurement feeling” is tested (uhuk, cough), I presume the quantity of each ingredient. Thanks Allah, my husband like my Dendeng Lambok since the first serve 😀
