By Martinus Setiawan.Beef rendang is common in Indonesia and Malaysia. Almost every family can make it, but I think my own family beef rendang recipe would be the best, and I think it is really delicious even if have to eat it everyday.Ingredients:1 1/2 pound boneless beef short ribs (cut into cubes)

  1. Chop the spice paste ingredients and then blend it in a food processor until fine.
  2. Heat the oil in a stew pot, add the spice paste, and stir-fry them.
  3. Add the beef and the pounded lemongrass and stir for 1 minute.
  4. Add the coconut milk, tamarind juice, water, and simmer on medium heat, stirring frequently until the meat is almost cooked.
  5. Add the toasted coconut, sugar/palm sugar, stirring to blend well with the meat.
  6. Lower the heat to low, cover the lid, and simmer for 1 – 1 1/2 hours or until the meat is really tender and the gravy has dried up.
