Beef Rendang is an Indonesian dish of beef simmered for hours in coconut milk and spices until tender and liquid has evaporated. It is full of spice flavours and tastes better the next day.



Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 3 hours
Makes: 4-6 servings

Ingredients
900g beef chuck
1 packet beef rendang spices
1 lemongrass
4 kaffir lime leaves
100ml coconut milk
steamed rice, to serve

Method
Cut the beef chuck into chunks. Cut the lemongrass into 5-cm pieces.

Heat the pan on high heat. Add in the rendang spices, lemongrass and kaffir lime leaves. Cook, stirring occassionally, until fragrant.



Add in the meat, turn to coat in the spices.



Pour in the coconut milk. Bring to the boil. Cover and turn the heat to low, simmer for 2.5 hours until the beef is tender and the sauce has evaporated.



Serve with steamed rice. You can serve right after you cooked it or keep it in the fridge to serve on the next day. Beef rendang tastes better the day after because the meat has fully absorbed the spices.
