HomeBlogs Rendang The Minang Cuisine
Rendang or ‘Randang’ in minang language is the famous cuisine from
Minangkabau, not only in Indonesia but also at overseas. Rendang always
served at Minangkabau ceremonial occasion, it is one of some peculiar
foods that Minangkabau have.
Rendang mostly made from beef, but sometimes chicken, duck, water
buffalo, mutton or even some of vegetables like jack fruit also could
be another kind of Rendang.
To make Rendang we need a lot of spices, which are: ginger, garlic,
red anions, chillies (red and ghost chillies), lemon grass, galangal/
wild ginger, turmeric leaves, nutmeg and others. Then we need coconut
milks to mix all spices with beef. Making wet Rendang or also known as
‘Kalio’ not take much time to cook. But when we want dried Rendang are
need two or three days cooking, it can be kept for three or four months
