Beef - Beef Rendang

This is my first beef dish in my blog. And the most fattening.


750g beef (cut in cubes)
2 cinnamon stick
5 cloves
3 star anise
1 tsp Cardamom Pods
1 tsp Fennel Seeds
5 Bay Leaves
5 Lime Leaves
3 Lemongrass (cut in 2 inches)
1.5 cups coconut milk
1 cup water
100 g Grated Coconut Flakes (kerisik)
2 tbsp palm sugar or sugar
1/2 tbsp tamarind paste
3 tbsp dark soy sauce
salt to taste

1 inch galangal
7 shallots
7 cloves garlic
3 lemon grass
15 dried chilli

Preparation Methods:
Blend ingredients. Heat 3 tbsp cooking oil and fry cinnamon stick, cloves, star anise, cardamom pods, fennel seeds,bay leaves, lime leaves, lemongrass till fragrant. Add blended ingredient and continue frying for a minute. Add Beef stir. Add water and coconut milk. Bring to boil add tamarind paste, sugar and soy sauce. Lower heat and leave to boil.

Meanwhile, heat pan and fry grated coconut flakes till golden brown. Remember to use low heat and stir constantly. Alternatively, heat oven to 150C and spread flakes on a piece of foil. Bake till golden brown (about 15 mins). Take flakes and pound till it becomes a brown paste. Add into the pot with beef. Cook till dry. Remember to stir constantly as bottom burns real fast. Serve when dry.

p/s i actually added more dark soya sauce cos i like my rendang black ( total of 5 tbsp)
