R - Beef Rendang

After a longer hiatus than we care to think about, we are finally back with ‘R’. One reason and the other have kept us from keeping to the weekly aspect of the Project, but we had never abandoned it in our thoughts. We’ve still got a list of recipes we are keen to try out, and despite all the interruptions in recent weeks, we will keep going. We’re determined/stubborn/pig-headed like that.

We’ve been eyeing this recipe from Rick Stein’s lovely book of recipes from South East Asia for a while now and the timing of ‘R’ is somewhat serendipitous as we are off to Bali next weekend and rendang is traditionally an Indonesian dish. This version appears in the Malaysian section of the book and is distinguished from its Indonesian equivalent by the addition of kaffir lime leaves, lemongrass and galangal.
