Hello

I am in the UK, and trying to recreate some of my favourite dishes, which are vey popular in Singapore and South East Asia, and where they are cooked at their best!

The Internet is giving me very mixed results with these dishes, so I thought I would ask your opinions on good rendang and laksa recipes. Any variations of these are fine, but a typically authentic version would be great as an introduction.

Your help would be most appreciated :)/>

Hi Micki_t,

I just cooked up a batch of beef rendang following the below recipe,but I reduced the chilli.

You can get fresh turmeric, galangal and lime leaf in UK? You can get kerisik?

It took 4 hours to cook and must watch and stir every 15 min or so to prevent burning.

The result was pretty good.

My uncle cooked the mutton randang using a slow cooker overnight and the meat was very tender.

Thank you limhf for this recipe, it looks wonderful!

I can easily get fresh turmeric (I have some in the kitchen, and a plant) and galangal, I have frozen lime leaves, and a kaffir lime tree! But I will have to check for the kerisik at the Asian supermarket, although will also try making my own following the recipe.

I will let you know the outcome :)/>

I am not sure over in UK but here we can easily buy those pre-mixed powder/paste for the two dishes you mentioned. It does save a lot of time to prepare the raw ingredients.

The flank steak gets a nice dose of salty and tropical flavors combined from sweet honey and pineapple juice. Marinate for 45 minutes and grill or go with the skillet/oven method (sear in the skillet then finish baking in the oven). Steak feels decadent, and you might be wondering how it’s considered healthy, but with simple ingredients and without going overboard on portions, it’s totally doable.
