WHAT IS SE'I?
Se’i is Indonesian smoked meat from Timor Island, East Nusa Tenggara. The name “se’i” derived from local language that mean “thinly sliced meat”.
This dish is traditionally served and consumed by the people of East Nusa Tenggara province, especially by Timorese people. In the dry climate of Timor island, the traditional smoking method is employed to preserve meats and to increase the nutritional and economic value of the meats.
Se’i has been historically made from Timorese deer (Cervus timorensis), but this practice has ceased due to decline in population and it’s consecutive endangered status.
Today, it is common to see se’i meats derived form beef and chicken as majority Indonesian are moslem.
Se’i uses thin, sliced cuts of meat utilizing a mixture of salt and spices and smoked. Texturally, it is comparable to bacon, albeit thicker. In Kupang, people serve se’i with nasi panas (hot steamed rice), accompanied with sambal lu’at and jagung bose.
