Indonesian Cuisine: Beef Rendang

Indonesian Cuisine: Beef Rendang
Traditional Indonesian food is packed full of flavour and colour, it is so diverse and varies between regions of Indonesia which is made up of over 6000 populated islands. In 2011 it became apparent just how popular Indonesian cuisine is when CNN released a list comprising the World's 50 best foods as picked by the public. After approximately 35,000 votes were tallied from all over the world, Indonesia finished with three dishes in the top 15. Satay came in at number 14, nasi goreng number 2, and voted the most popular food in the world was Rendang. Rendang involves slow cooking beef in a coconut milk sauce with a combination of herbs. When the meat is tender and the sauce has thickened this delicious dish is then served with rice. 

Not only is this traditional Indonesian meal mouth-wateringly good but it is also simple to make. If you want to try this at home the easiest way is to use our Indonesian Rendang curry paste. Although this dish is traditionally served with beef, it can also be served with chicken or lamb. For a vegetarian option, replace meat with vegetables of your choice.
