Lamb Rendang with Nasi Lemak (Coconut Rice)

I decided to make lamb rendang today with only the ingredients that are currently in my pantry – so no fresh chilies, shallots, or galangal. Instead, I used dried chilies, yellow onion, and ginger. Thankfully, I had a couple stalks of lemongrass in my freezer. It turned out soooooooo good! I served it with nasi […]

Chicken Rendang

Last Sunday, I finally decided to use the homemade rendang paste I had stashed in the freezer since January…of this year (I’m not that terrible of a procrastinator…I think). As always, every time I make rendang, I wonder why I don’t cook it more often because it’s sooooooo delicious. Oh yeah…I forgot for a moment […]

Easy Slow Cooker Chicken Curry

Wow! We had a -10ºF temp. with a wind chill of -38º overnight! It was definitely the coldest I’ve ever experienced since I’ve been here. We survived the night, thankfully! The house is still intact – the roof did not come down on us despite all the weird noises it was making. :D And most […]

As with most of my mom’s recipes, the dish comes without any actual measurement of the ingredients – everything was just “agak-agak”, meaning “more […]

Chicken Rendang

Hello everyone! It has been a while since my last posting. Sorry…I just couldn’t find the time. Anyway, I hope everyone has had a great summer so far. I actually have quite a few recipes/pictures that I would like to share. They have been sitting in my “draft” collection since last fall. Hopefully, I will […]

Beef Rendang

I came across this recipe approximately five or six years ago on a Geocities website. Although I have made this dish based on the original recipe before and it turned out great, I have since then tweaked and refined it a little because I felt there were too many variables to begin with to come […]
