  1. This was very tasty! It was the first time I’ve tried cooking a rendang curry and I was very happy with it! I added some extra veggies and served with brown rice. My toddler was happy to eat it too!

  2. Awesome, simple recipe, thank you. I coat the beef in flour seasoned with salt and pepper and fry it up to seal the meat before adding to the slow cooker. I’ve also used leftovers to make the most delicious Beef Rendang pies. Thanks for the great recipe!

  3. We made this for dinner last night.
    Everyone including the kids ate it. We served it with rice and steamed peas and corn on the side. It was very nice although I think I will add a handful of raisins to the sauce next time.

  4. This was delicious. I used beans instead of sweet potato. Whole family enjoyed it and we have enough for dinner tomorrow night also.

    I’m just making this today. Smells delicious. Really nice and easy to prepare.
    Looking forward to dinner tonight.

  6. This was super easy and very tasty! My ‘I’m not a fan of curries’ devoured it and asked for seconds lol this is a very yummy recipe, I didn’t add anything extra. I felt it didn’t need anything else 🙂

  7. Really yummy. I went with Paulene’s alterations, basically added dry chicken stock no extra fluid. Turned out saucy enough, just served with rice and crusty bread. We loved it. Gonna make it again.

  8. Made this yesterday for dinner tonight, great tasting recipe & will be making again. Thank you ?

  9. First time I’ve ever made an Indian curry dish as hubby & I don’t like spicy food. This was fall apart delicious after 9hrs cooking on a mix of high for 2hrs then low 7hrs. Even hubby, being somewhat sceptical, cleaned up his plate !! Wld make it again.

  10. my teenagers and i loved this dish, there was clean bowls all round defiantly will be make this again, we just loved it.
    i used a 400ml can of coconut cream, and add extra onion and celery to the recipe along with the vegies asked for ( i was just using up my vegie i had), this is very saucy, so i cooked it with the tea towel trick and i did end up using the corn flour to thicken it, served with rice and pupadums.

  11. This was easy to make and very tasty, enjoyed by all who had it. I used AYAM Rendang sauce as I could not find paste anywhere – the recipe seems to use the two terms interchangeably?? Really great and no real hint of spice for those who hear the word curry and think firetruck. Thanks for a great recipe

    Would I be able to use normal cream instead of coconut milk? Or would it ruin the flavor? My daughter is allergic to coconut but we would love to try this dish!

  13. I made this tonight very yummy. I coated the beef with corn flour like we do for the Mongolian beef and browned it. I also fried off the paste and added all the other ingredients in frying pan to heat them up and added to slow cooker. It worked it wasn’t watery at all.

  14. I’ve had this many times, it’s delicious. My partner and I love spicy so I add chilli as well to add a bit more heat.

  15. WOW!!.. this recipe is packed full of flavour!…. My local takeaway where I usually get this doesn’t even come close to this. I recommend trying this wholeheartedly.

  16. What paste did you use? I live in NZ Making for the first time tonight. And do you add the whole 185g? So exited i love all your recipes so far
