Rendang

Here, I present you the half-end process of making rendang (1kg beef) on last 26 July 2016 . This was my exercise before making the real one for Idul Fitri 1435H.

Rendang, the world best food (according to CNN travel), is the next food from heaven after manna and salwa (Al-quran 2:57) according to me 🙂

The  CNN travel site says that the beauty of rendang comes not only from its taste, but also with simple recipe. The recipe might be simple, but I assure you the way of making it is more than meets the eyes.  I used to help my grand mother to cook rendang, she cooked with the traditional way: firewood and super huge frying pan.  When I say making the real rendang is more complicated than you think then I know what I am talking about.

The article in wikipedia gives a good general description of what rendang is, and as a minangnese I approve this article 🙂

Wikipedia says that rendang possesses antimicrobial properties such that it can maintain its taste and healthy for a month without putting it in the refrigerator. And, again, as a minangnese, I confirm this statement. In fact, when my brother and I were studying in the university, rendang sent by our mother was still good after three months (and six months if it was put in the refrigerator).
