One of the most popular dishes in South Asia, especially in Indonesia, Malaysia, and Thailand, this hearty dry pork stew is packed with flavors. It is equally delicious made with chicken or beef. Although not typical for the traditional rendang, we used ready-made red Thai curry paste. If you’d like, try making your own paste by blending together red chilies, shallots, galangal (or ginger), lemongrass, garlic, kafir lime leaves. It’s perfectly fine to use ready-made paste though!
