Rendang is the culinary pride that often wowed many a world class culinary observer. This caramelized beef curry is known in Indonesia as Rendang Padang. You can create three different dishes with one recipe by varying the cooking time. The first stage is kare (beef curry), cook a bit longer then it became kalio (brown curry), and when it reached the caramelized phase, you get rendang.
This is a way to modernize rendang as part of a fine dining menu. Beef tournedos are grilled and bathed in a rendang sauce instead of using gravy. Serve with Nasi Tumpeng (yellow cone rice, one of Indonesian culinary symbols) and Indonesian condiments, such as caramelized crispy potato and Balinese spiced vegetable with coconut milk sauce. Use leftover rendang paste by simmering with brown stock, and then strain to make rendang sauce.
