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)

Mariam - Jul 18, 2019

Very authentic

Brian - Jul 18, 2019

My partner thought this was the best of the 12 we have used so far. Certainly very nice curry. Maybe the Waitrose steak that I used could have been better. Certainly easy to put together. Used my index finger to empty the small tubs. Pleased with result, taste great for summer evening.

Deborah - Jul 18, 2019

Just was ok

Absolutely stunning. Favourite meal I’ve had on here so far. I think next time I’d try and cut the potatoes even smaller though as they took a while to cook!

Lacked some bite and spice

Paul - Jul 08, 2019

Sorry. Not for me

Suzanne - Jul 08, 2019

Spice factor was great but the combination of potato and rice was not for me, maybe substitute with peppers and mushrooms

Marie - Jul 07, 2019

Great flavour and the beef was nice and tender

Danielle - Jul 05, 2019

Lovely curry with a good amount of spice. Only problem was the sauce was really thin even after reducing for 20 minutes, so would probs use less coconut milk next time

Paul - Jul 02, 2019

Lovely, but too spicy for my wife

Fiona - Jul 02, 2019

Katie - Jul 01, 2019

Best one yet!

Christopher - Jun 30, 2019

Delicious very tasty indeed though I'd use a pre braised beef rather than the steak suggested as it becomes very tough

Jane - Jun 29, 2019

Very strong and rich, I felt it was a bit overly so.

Andrea - Jun 29, 2019

Having had rendang in Bali. This didn’t taste authentic although very tasty

Sarah - Jun 29, 2019

Very enjoyable

Michael - Jun 29, 2019

Quite tasty, but not rendang.

Victoria - Jun 27, 2019

Looks nothing like the photo! And I wouldn’t say it particularly tasted like rendang either. Not unpleasant though.

Greg - Jun 26, 2019

Not bad curry, didn’t really taste like a Rendang particularly

Colin - Jun 25, 2019

Absolutely fantastic

Steve - Jun 25, 2019

Did not like with potatoes

Brian - Jun 24, 2019

Tasty but nothingh special. Looks nothing like the image on recipe card which I've noticed on as few recipes. Would order again as easy to cook and no the many ingredients in enter.

Greg - Jun 24, 2019

Tasty but not the best one I’ve cooked

Pretty spicy, but absolutely delicious.

Gretta - Jun 22, 2019

Delicious. Will definitely be making this again.

Carol - Jun 21, 2019
