Beef Rendang

beef rendang

This meal, rich with spices, comes from Indonesia. We often find it impossible to make curries to suit our families as someone is sure to like it super hot, while the children prefer it mild. This is technically not a curry. It is fragrant but not too spicy. Like all curries it is twice as nice the next day making the perfect Royal Breakfast.  Be sure to make more than you need so you have plenty of left overs. A food processor is needed for this one as it involves first making a paste.

Notes
  1. If you are using a tough stewing type of diced beef, you will need to pre-stew the beef for 1-2hrs before starting this recipe. Just put in a pot with a lid on and let it stew in its own juices for a couple of hours on low heat. Add into curry once stewed.
  2. Serve with our cauliflower rice for a grain free option or our famous coconut brown rice.
