Last week, I went to Lime Tree, a South East Asian restaurant in San Francisco, with Mo-Fo and ShunBun. One of the dishes that we all enjoyed very much was Beef Rendang - which is a dish of beef cubes stewed in Indonesian spices and coconut milk. I remembered seeing a Beef Rendang recipe at Closet Cooking so I decided to make it yesterday. Since I couldn't find beef with good marbling, I used beef stew meats instead. The result was not as buttery as I wanted it to be although I had cooked it for three plus hours ... Fortunately, the taste was really good so I was still happy with it. I served it with fried shallots to add some crunch to it.
