    This flavorful dish is reputed to be a copy of the recipe served at the Ramayana Room, Hotel Indonesia, Djakarta during the 1960's. The jalapeno pepper is a western substitution. Feel free to use any hot green pepper in your dish.

      Very tasty! We enjoyed the vegetables with the beef. I'm allergic to fresh chilies, so subbed a little sriracha for the jalapeno. Nice clear directions, simple prep. Thanks for sharing.

      The addition of vegetables makes this different from any beef rendang I have ever tasted, but that doesn't keep it from being totally delicious. I didn't have a jalapeno, so used a long green chilli which gave a lovely, mild result. This is a perfect go-to recipe for a busy night. Once you've cubed the meat and chopped the veggies, the rest takes no time at all. I reckon you could get the preparation out of the way in the morning or even the night before. Thanks so much for posting.
