Beef Rendang, Encore!

Yesterday i saw an advertisement in paper by a local Kopitiam (cafe) lauching for their Ramadan (Muslim fasting month) meal, their beef rendang look so yummy..I immediately went to pasar (wet market ) to buy all ingredients and cook this beef rendang meal (served with yellow turmeric rice ) the same day..

This time, i further enhance the taste by increasing the amount of the herbs used and also replaced white sugar with gula melaka (palm sugar) from the old recipe. I simply love to eat the fragrant herbs mixture after cooked..

A good rendang can't leave without kerisik (toasted coconut) . This time i also prepared more kerisik and store the balance in the fridge for later use..Stir fry coconut over low heat for about 20mins..

joceline, sorry, i am not sure which part actually, usually i told the seller i want the beef to cook rendang. This time i bought imported beef from India which cost me RM 15/kg. Actually it is ok to use tough part because you need to cook several hours till the meat is tendered. I use pressue cooker for speedy version.

Mel said...

Slurp...... I'm gonna cook this one day! Yours really look so delicious. It taste more delicious the next day, right?

Angie Ng said...

牛肉Rendang是我的最爱。。
不过不会煮,因为不会买牛肉又怕煮的不好,所以还是拿个碗来装回家比较容易。。。嘻嘻!

Li Shuan said...

haiyo...super great dish... I want to see whether I can find tumeric leaves here or not. Must learn this! (Today I cook your 烧肉again using your five spice powder. I love the five spice powder, because it give better colour and fragrant to the meat).Thanks again

3 hungry tummies, yes, of course, i always forgot to submit to MMM or sometime too lazy to prepare email and send to you, hehehe..So i will put a MMM submission in this post.

The Experimental Cook said...

Your rendang looks seriously delicious - my mouth's watering already. With the yellow rice presented this way, it's good for a restaurant!

Veronica @ Minty’sKitchen said...

Sonia, your rendang looks delicious. Look at the beautiful colour of your nasi kunyit. I've never cook with tumeric leaves before. Do they have the same fragrance as the tumeric root?

Anonymous said...

hi sonia,
ur rendang dagang looks delicious, do u know how to cook 野猪肉 can we cook in the same manner as beef. from klang Tan. TQ

Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

Klang Tan, yes, you can cook with 野猪肉 this way too..

Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

Veronica, turmeric leaf smell is not as strong as turmeric root, i like the fragrant from this leaf. If a Rendang without turmeric leaf, sure taste not as authentic.

Nami | Just One Cookbook said...

Thanks for your kind words on my posts Sonia. I've heard and seen this dish many times on food blogs and it's my dream to eat it. Some ingredients are hard to get here (who knows maybe I can) but I wish to eat this one day!! Looks delicious!
