Beef Rendang is a curry type dish that is memorable if nothing else. Try it though, and you will taste something that is both exotic and satisfying to your palate. I made this on the spicy side, with ten tabasco peppers, while it was cooking, I was really worried I had gone too far. It was scorching hot! Surprisingly, the longer it simmered and cooked, the flavors married and flowed into each other producing an end result that is spicy but not unbearable, flavors that seem to seep in and around your mouth filling it with something that is purely pleasurable.
It's really hard to describe how this dish tastes. It's one of those things that you just have to experience for yourself. It's not hard to make although the list of ingredients can be daunting. If you go a step at a time though, checking things off as you go, the whole process goes pretty smoothly. I found most of the ingredients in the Asian market nearby.
