Easy Beef Rendang【Pressure Cooker Recipe】 牛肉仁当

Rendang Sapi Padang or beef rendang is originally from Indonesia, a well-known Padang dish that’s made by stewing meat in coconut milk and spices for hours until the meat becomes tender and dark, liquids evaporated and caramelized. The authentic rendang recipe required a long list of spices and at least 3-4 hours of cooking time. For a busy SAHM and working parents in Singapore, I think most of us would be interested in the short-cut method than spending half a day in the kitchen to cook a pot of rendang. 

This is a super simple beef rendang recipe using instant Padang rendang paste, merely 45 minutes cooking time that tastes like it’s been slow-cooked for 3-4 hours, with perfectly tender and succulent beef infused in rich aromatic thick rendang gravy. I’m using Ninja Foodi multi-cooker that comes with a 6L deep pot, with the reversible rack, I’m able to create an extra tier to cook the rice together with rendang. I started with 30 mins pressure cook beef, then add the rice and continue cooking for 15 minutes. And I have my rendang and rice ready at the same time without the need of cooking rice in a separate rice cooker. 

Add the reversible rack to create extra tier,
cook rice and rendang at the same time.
Rice and water ratio is 2:3 

The rice is perfectly cooked and ready to serve!
The Ninja Foodi that I’m using is a combination of a pressure cooker and air fryer in one appliance, it’s super-efficient and time-saving. Besides pressure cook and air frying, there are other functions such as steam, slow cook, sear/ saute, bake/ roast, grill, and keep warm. Ever since I got this cooker, I’ve been using it in most of my cooking and baking, it really helps to prepare meals quickly without hassle which I would highly recommend to everyone who loves easy and hassle-free cooking with lesser pots and pans to wash.

1. Marinate beef with potato starch and 25g of Rendang Paste for 1 hour or overnight. 

2. Set Ninja Foodi Saute/Sear mode MD/HI, heat some oil and saute lemongrass and gently stir-fry the marinated beef to lock the moisture. 

3. Add in the rest of the ingredients, mix well.

4. Close the pressure lid, seal the valve. Set Pressure Cook (HI) 30 minutes. When the cooking is done, quick-release pressure. If you’re cooking rice, place reversible rack and rice in the pot as shown in the pictures above. Continue with 15 minutes of pressure cook on high.  

5. When the cooking is done, natural pressure release 15 minutes. Remove the rice and rack from the pot. Set Saute/Sear mode to thicken the rendang gravy. 
Note: If you’re not cooking with rice, you can serve the rendang after the first 30mins, natural pressure release 15mins, the meat is quite tender. If you like it almost-melt-in-mouth, set 45 minutes Pressure Cook (HI), 15 minutes natural pressure release.
