Rendang Tok

Rendang Tok
recipe courtesy of Chef Ismail

1 kg beef

3 cardamom pods
2 pcs star anise
1 cinnamon stick
1 tsp grated nutmeg
3 tsp meat curry powder
2 1/2 cup coconut milk

To be processed:
20 dried chillies (reconstituted and remove seed, if necessary)
25 pcs shallots
8 garlic
3 stalks Lemongrass

3 pcs asam gelugor
Brown sugar (Gula Melaka)
2 tbsp kerisik (1/2 cup grated fresh coconut or dried dessicated coconut, dry toasted in pan over small fire until golden brown. Processed finely in food processor, or pounded in pestle and mortar)
cooking oil

Add in the blended ingredients along with the spices and coconut milk into a large wok. Simmer until oil separated from the spices.

Add in beef and continue to simmer until gravy thickened. This process took me about 6 hours.

Lastly, add in the rest of the other ingredients, season well and continue to simmer over gentle flame to a consistency and thickness you preferred.

MamaFaMi -- sendiri buat.... Chef ajar masa dia masak for Malaysian Embassy, he's fond of teaching....I've learned a lot from him especially masakan dolu-dolu

Hajar -- masa nak buat rendang tok ni, hilang glamour..... badan bau rendang

Mamasya -- pulut kuning masak dalam microwave... boleh tahan!!!

Wiz -- the rendang darkened bila simpan 2 - 3 hari....dunno chemistry lesson in school did not cover rendang, or, maybe they's just that I always found meself asleep in class

Cek De Sam -- memang best belajar dengan Chef Ismail....he's so funny
