Beef Rendang4.2/5 (BASED ON 5019 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)

This was very good, regrettably a bit too hot for me as i have no tolerance for heat.
Andrea - Nov 11, 2019
When I reached the point of adding the coconut milk I brought to a simmer and popped into the slow cooker for the day while at work. It was the most tender beef rump and soft potatoes. Still a bit runny but delicious. Would definitely do again.
Catherine - Nov 10, 2019
Easy and delicious. Like other reviewers I found it looked nothing like the picture and not much like a rendang. But it was very tasty
Vanessa - Nov 07, 2019
Very nice indeed.
Leontia - Nov 07, 2019

Clare - Nov 06, 2019

Lyndsey - Nov 04, 2019
Alison - Nov 04, 2019
Tasty but too much coconut milk it makes it sickly. I would use half the amount
Claire - Nov 04, 2019
Potatoes need extra cooking even when diced small. Probably best to part boil them before adding to the dish.
Paul - Nov 04, 2019
Didn't look anything like the picture as our coconut milk would reduce enough...

Delicious, bit of a kick but really nice!
Karen - Oct 12, 2019
Lots of flavour, nice and spicy, very simple to cook
Jenefer - Oct 12, 2019
We loved the Rendang and would get it again, the flavour was amazing and we loved it. Only reason we gave it a 4 was because we preferred the Goan curry and the crispy chilli beef. NOTE TO FUTURE COOKERS give the potato pieces longer or chop them a bit smaller and also we got a rump steak, however we think the better the cut of beef, the better it’ll be so treat yourself to a better cut!
Jayne - Oct 12, 2019
I used casserole steak and slow cooked it - added extra chilli and was quite tasty
Rebecca - Oct 11, 2019
Really lovely, the potatoes were a great addition and was fairly spicy
Brendan - Oct 11, 2019
Very good loved the kick from the spice
