Reclaiming Rendang

RendangDaging_200Rendang is a dish made from beef (or other meats) which slowly cooked in coconut milk and spices. The taste is curry like, pungent, with beautiful coconut fragrant, and a load of hotness from the chillies. A good rendang usually has darkish brown coloring with a greasy grainy rendang paste. The original version of rendang took hours of cooking; slowly altering the cooking method from boiling to frying as the liquid evaporates. A well cooked wet rendang could stay good up into a month with regular reheating, which makes the taste grow more intense from day to day. A good quality rendang though, would rarely survives through one complete week, or even day three, before being consumed out.

Beside of beef, rendang can be made with other proteins, including chicken, mutton, prawns, liver, duck, or even eggs. You could also have the vegetarian version of rendang using young jack fruit's meat, and pebbles potatoes has been known as the ideal soul mate of beef rendang.

Rendang originally came from Minangkabau region of Indonesia (a.k.a. "Padang" region) with slightly different version from one village to another. Thanks to the merantau culture of the Minang people, rendang is now widely available not only throughout Indonesia, but also in neighboring countries like Malaysia and Singapore. In Indonesia, you could confidently bet to find this particular dish in every Padang food restaurant; it is not a Padang food restaurant without rendang.

Rendang is also considered as one of the national food of Indonesia, though lately Mr. President chose to promote Nasi Goreng Indonesia instead at the World Expo Shanghai China 2010 (WESC 2010) which held at Shanghai, China, from May 1st - Oktober 31st 2010; perhaps due to the more simpler preparation required by Nasi Goreng Indonesia. Indonesian culinary experts on the other hand, unanimously choose rendang as one of the signature dish of Indonesia.

However, even though Wikipedia clearly states that Rendang is a dish originated from Indonesia, and there's no doubt in Indonesian mind that rendang is their national cuisine, a recent Google search shown an interesting fact that the most prominent promoters of Rendang are not Indonesian, but Malaysian.
