Beef Rendang4.2/5 (BASED ON 2564 reviews)
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
Make some rice
Cook the rice according to packet instructions.
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.
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.
Add the beef (and juices) and the RENDANG GARNISH to the pan and cook for 2 more mins, or until the potatoes are tender.
Serve the curry over rice and garnish with coriander leaves and cashew nuts (if using)

Debbie - Mar 04, 2019

Charlie - Mar 04, 2019
Really delicious, one of my favourites.
Paul - Mar 04, 2019
Nice easy recipe but it didnt look like the picture.. Too much coconut milk?? 400ml seems way too much.
Cristina - Mar 03, 2019
Nothing to do with a real Rendang unfortunately
Simon - Mar 02, 2019
Lovely dish. I buy diced beef and don’t flash fry it. I add it in after the coconut milk and let it simmer for longer. This works well as the potatoes do beef a lot longer to cook
Beverley - Feb 28, 2019
Very nice, but not as good as others we have had. It's the first one we have said we won't re-order.
Victoria - Feb 27, 2019
Loved this dish delicious, definitely agree with other reviewers that you need to pre cook potatoes
Lucy - Feb 27, 2019
Delicious but too hot in my opinion
Lorraine - Feb 25, 2019
Alison - Feb 25, 2019
Unreal! Super easy too.
Steve - Feb 23, 2019
Fantastic. One of my favourite dishes so far. Really flavoursome.
Sue - Feb 21, 2019
I cut the potatoes really small so they cooked in the time, and i used just over half the redang paste (thanks previous reviewers for that tip). Mine wasnt quite as dark as the picture but it had a good colour, i didn't wipe my pan out after i cooked the steak so there was lots of colour on the onions and potatoes from the caramelised meat juices in the pan. Much nicer with the cashews sprinkled over at the end. It was very nice, we both enjoyed it
Linda - Feb 20, 2019
Lovely and spicy. Full of flavour
Wendy - Feb 20, 2019
My favourite so far
Lisa - Feb 18, 2019
Only one I'm not keen on but my family liked it
Andrew - Feb 17, 2019
Jamie - Feb 17, 2019
I’m with Katy. It didn’t look very appetising and was really rich. The flavours were very nice though.
Tom - Feb 16, 2019
Zoe - Feb 16, 2019
It was tasty but would use chicken next time oh and read the reviews about the heat of it. I like spicy so it was ok for me. Maybe vegetables would be a good thing to add
Helen - Feb 15, 2019
Very tasty, though quite hot.
Suzannah - Feb 14, 2019
Katy - Feb 14, 2019
Flavours were nice but it looked horrendous, like cat sick ???? Definitely nothing like the picture, it was really creamy, not rich looking like in the picture!
Emily - Feb 12, 2019
Lisa - Feb 11, 2019
not a favourite, wish I looked at the reviews first
Paula - Feb 11, 2019
Anna - Feb 10, 2019
It was very tasty although I didn’t use all of the rendang paste - based on other comments, I didn’t want it to be too spicy and with just half the tub it was perfect! Also used fillet instead of sirloin so the beef was super tender.
Gordon - Feb 10, 2019
Lovely but cook the potatoes a little in advance
Tracy - Feb 09, 2019
Darren - Feb 06, 2019
Ali - Feb 04, 2019
Delicious and easy to make. I soften the potatoes in the microwave first as they don’t cook properly otherwise. Very nice flavours and easy to make.
Gillian - Feb 03, 2019
Stephen - Feb 02, 2019
I used thinly sliced chicken instead of beef, but it still tasted great!
