beef rendang

first time i make beef rendang on 19.3.2020.^^

was inspired by E’s mom, L. they invited us for peranakan home dinner 2 weeks back. 🙂

It was excellent!..

the fragrance when you lift the lid like any excellent rendang in a good restaurant..quite super la!

my first time! should be able go reproduce..

I bought 500g frozen beef cubes (chuck) from sheng shiong & i used happy family cheap rendang paste (2 for S$3.50)



  • 500g beef cubes (i cut each into 4 smaller cubes)
  • 1 packet happy family rendang sauce paste (200g)
  • 1 packet coconut milk 200g
  • 1 medium yellow onions
  • 3tbsp kerisik (desiccated coconut)


  1. fry 3tbsp kerisik till brown not burnt. remove.
  2. cut beef into smaller cubes & blanched with boiling water, clean & drain dry
  3. fry onions & chopped garlic, then add rendang paste & fry, then add beef cubes
  4. fry beef cubes, then add little water. continue to fry for 15mins..add water and simmer another 1hr 30mins.
  5. add coconut milk and reduce 15mins to almost no liquids..(beef very tender & internal very moist..)..some oil will be rendered out of the coconut milk giving a beautiful typical orange red tinge..add back the toasted kerisik…rendang will smell fantastic!!!
