Beef Rendang

It's Friday, it's been kinda a long week for me, okay I was sick last weekend and had sickies for Monday and Tuesday. So The last thing I want on a Friday is to spend hours in the kitchen. I just want a quick meal and watch my movies. But I also wanted something a tiny bit spicy, not too much as I had a suspected case of tonsilitis last week. Seriously, I am dying for some kickass chillies but must be kind to my throat.

So I remembered Jackie from Jackie M  had sent me some curry paste and one of them was the mild rendang!!! Yipppeeee!! Couldn't be better... ;)

It was so damn easy to cook, follow the instructions, add meat and coconut milk/cream. Dinner was ready in half hour, it was only long coz I added too much water and left it on longer to simmer for reduction of liquid. Take a look at the pics. And please if you are working like me and have no time to be making marinades and paste, just buy them online, she delivers them by express couriers in foam box with chill pack. The package arrived intact and secure with no spillage. Just awesome!





Nom nom nom... my throat will be happy and so will I.. haven't had spicy food for a week ;) Later! Gonna feed my face now .....

Hi Mel, you lucky gal! You gotta get the rendang paste, it's beautiful, I love it and not biased at all, all I added was water, coconut cream and meat, nothing else and it taste superb! Didn't even need salt or sugar or anything. I love premix :) so handy!
