Beef Rendang – Indonesian Curry

I’m guessing the majority of people I know haven’t ever had the pleasure of being introduced to Beef Rendang – Indonesian Curry, I’m not even sure how it is that I started making Rendang. It seems kind of unlikely that back in the day, basically pre Internet & pre Food Network, this small Midwestern family would fall head over heels with this spicy curry beef dish that’s the national dish (and national treasure) of many countries, not just Indonesia.

Every now and then I have to break out with an Asian dish.

I see the bottle of soy sauce, maybe there was a commercial on tv or a pic in a magazine, or maybe I just drove by an Asian restaurant…honestly, it doesn’t take much to get me to want to make something, and that’s why I made Beef Chow Fun – Gon Chow Ngau Ho.
