Beef Rendang topped the ‘World’s 50 best foods’ list in 2011. Traditionally it is rich, slightly dry curry dish prepared by Indonesians and Malaysians for weddings and other special occasions as it usually takes hours to cook leaving you with fall-apart chunks of beef. Our take on the Rendang is a quick version to save cooking time but to still bring you the classic aromatic ingredients of a Rendang with flavours of cardamom, turmeric, chilli and coconut! If you prefer chicken to the sirloin steaks in this dish you can absolutely make the swap.

Our 20 minute recipe

  • 1.

    Make some rice

    Cook the rice according to packet instructions.

  • 2.

    Flash fry the beef

    Heat a little oil in a wide pan over high heat then add the beef strips and flash-fry for a couple of seconds on each side just to sear and lightly brown them. Then remove and keep aside.

  • 3.

    Create the curry

    Fry the onion and potato in the same pan with the GARLIC PASTE for 3 mins over medium-high heat.

    Stir in the RENDANG PASTE and fry for 2 more mins.

    Pour in the coconut milk and let it simmer for 10 mins, or until the liquid reduces by about a third.

  • 4.

    Finishing touches

    Add the beef (and juices) and the RENDANG GARNISH to the pan and cook for 2 more mins, or until the potatoes are tender.

  • 5.

    Serve the curry over rice and garnish with coriander leaves and cashew nuts, (if using).

Beef needed to be slow cooked. A Rendang from what I have had previous is a slow cooked stew. This one is not as tasty as all other simply cook dishes we have tried.

Helen - Oct 05, 2019

Interesting dish, we quite liked it but it turned out looking nothing like the picture and even though I diced the potatoes very very small it took a long time to cook. Maybe a good idea to give a potato weight. I would probably par boil them or grate them next time.

CIJ - Oct 04, 2019

Extremely flavoursome.
