Beef Rendang4.2/5 (BASED ON 2263 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)

once cooked looked “bland” and although had “hot” taste this was more an after taste than flavour.

Didn’t look as dark as the photo on the recipe but tasted amazing
Adam - Jan 04, 2019
A little to spicy for a traditional rendang but packed full of flavour
Debbie - Jan 04, 2019

This looks nothing like the photo. Despite following all the instructions and cooking for well over the recommended time it was extremely watery. I had to add a lot of corn starch to get it thick enough. Otherwise, the flavours were nice and there was a nice kick to it.
Heather - Dec 28, 2018
Ok but just tasted like curried beef
Suzannah - Dec 28, 2018

Excelent spicy flavoursome
Annie - Dec 22, 2018
A little bland and not as dark in colour as the pics
Samantha - Dec 18, 2018
Didn’t look like the pic at all. The potatoes needed way longer even chopped up v small, the steak need a bit longer too unless you like it blue. Tasty though and quite spicy. Not my fave but the husband loved it.

Kyra - Dec 09, 2018
Amazing! Quite spicy
Steve - Dec 05, 2018
Added more steak and potato to make enough for 3 and it was fantastic. Would thoroughly recommend
Emma - Dec 04, 2018
Horrible dish!! Didn’t taste anything like a Rengdang. Sadly wasted nice meat on it. This dish should be slowly cooked (4hrs) and very dry, better off getting a paste from an authentic Asian store
Jill - Dec 04, 2018
It was lovely but looked nothing like the pic!
Melanie - Dec 01, 2018

Too peppery and looks nothing like the recipe card photo!
dione - Nov 21, 2018
My beef didnt seem the same as the picture, tasty but not a first choice
Amanda - Nov 21, 2018
One of my favourites. Doesn’t look like the picture. Much lighter and thinner sauce but a really tasty curry
Mike - Nov 20, 2018
Superb, will cook this again
Janice - Nov 20, 2018
Liked this a lot, would be inclined to swap the potatoes for something else next time as it was a bit starchy. Added some broccoli which was really good.
Nick - Nov 20, 2018
Not as tasty as we rxpected????
Rory - Nov 20, 2018
Spicier than expected Not really what I was expecting in terms of flavour
Ben - Nov 19, 2018
Added double the coconut milk as I found it too hot last time
Tunmi - Nov 19, 2018
Worth remembering to add salt
Olivier - Nov 18, 2018
Mediocre... rather tasteless
Jane - Nov 17, 2018
