Only dark side of this dish is that it takes some time, it has to simmer on your stove on low heat for like 4 hours.. to get the best result.. I know right? like.. what the F$@#.. but really.. it's worth it.. nothing beats a home-made Beef Rendang.. a great dish to make when you have your friends over on a cold rainy day.. serve some white rice rice and some Gado Gado with it and you're done!
