This indonesian and malay dish is most aboriginal
called festive. Beef, coconut milk and lots of spices are stewed together,
sometimes a few hours, after which the rendang is served (of course, along with rice and a bunch of snacks)
to a wedding table or during big celebrations. Although in modern society it may well
be prepared and just for a Sunday family dinner. If you have a slow cooker at home
(slowcooker), preparing a rendang will be even easier.
