Right off the hop, we were treated to the most amazing (and huge) dish of Rendang beef, rice and noodles. I learned that Rendang is a dish traditional served at ceremonies or festivals to honour guests. The beef is slow cooked in coconut milk and a myriad of spices. As the coconut milk evaporates and the spices absorb, the beef begins to caramelize. The result is a sweet and spicy "pulled" beef dish that was absolutely unbelievable. I'm looking forward to trying this recipe out on my own.
