  • Heat the vegetable oil in a large, heavy-bottomed pot over medium heat. Add the chopped shallots and minced garlic, and sauté until they turn golden brown and fragrant.
  • Add the beef cubes to the pot and cook until they are browned on all sides. This step helps to enhance the flavor of the meat.
  • Once the beef is browned, add the lemongrass stalks, kaffir lime leaves, sliced red chilies, ground turmeric, ground coriander, ground cumin, ground ginger, and tamarind paste. Stir well to coat the beef evenly with the spices.
  • Pour in the coconut milk and add enough water to cover the beef. Season with salt to taste. Stir everything together and bring the mixture to a boil.
  • Once it starts boiling, reduce the heat to low and simmer the sauce uncovered for about 3-4 hours, or until the beef is tender and the sauce has thickened. Stir occasionally and add more water if needed to prevent the sauce from drying out.
  • As the sauce simmers, the flavors will intensify, and the beef will become tender. Keep cooking until the sauce has reduced and thickened to your desired consistency.
  • Once the sauce has thickened and the beef is tender, remove the lemongrass stalks and kaffir lime leaves. Taste and adjust the seasoning if needed.
  • Serve the Indonesian rendang curry sauce hot with steamed rice or coconut rice. It also pairs well with Indonesian side dishes like fried tempeh, sambal, and pickles.

Indonesian rendang curry sauce is a rich and aromatic meat-based sauce originating from Indonesia. It is traditionally made with beef, slow-cooked in a flavorful blend of spices and coconut milk until the meat becomes tender and the sauce thickens. The combination of spices like turmeric, coriander, cumin, and ginger, along with the creaminess of the coconut milk, creates a savory and fragrant sauce that is deeply satisfying.
