Beef Rendang – Rendang Daging

  This dish is very popular in Malaysia and Indonesia. Beef Rendang is a Curried Beef dish that is spicy, aromatic and consists of a coconut rich & thick gravy. Coconut milk is used to cook the beef very slowly. Fresh grated coconut is then dry roasted till golden, crushed and added to the curry. The curry is further cooked down and reduced to get a thick gravy coating the beef pieces. This recipe is a little lighter too as No extra oil is required. The coconut milk provides natural oil to cook and flavor the meat. ( Many times the ground paste is fried in an excessive amount of oil to bring out the flavors. Here however, we make use of a clay pot which helps to enhance the flavors without the additional oil)

Notes: 
  • You may also add kaffir lime leaves ( about 6-8 leaves) and a lime size ball of tamarind pulp to the simmering curry, for a more sour taste.
  • Some also like to add a Tbsp of sugar to add a sweet dimension to the curry. You can also use caramel soy sauce to sweeten.
  • 3/4 of a leaf of turmeric, rolled up and shredded can be added to the simmering curry for another layer of flavor. Experiment with the flavors that you like.
