First, thanks to Robert Z for sending this along! Check out his amazing www.dadbert.com blog!! II mean wow – I’ve been wanting to try these for a while now and figured I would probably never get one. So yeah – it’s in here – real meat! Rendang is also one of my favorite things in the known universe. Here’s a little about it from Wikipedia –

Rendang is a spicy meat dish which originated from Indonesia, especially the ethnic group of Minangkabau people,[2] and is now commonly served across the country.[3] One of the characteristic foods of Minangkabau culture, it is served at ceremonial occasions and to honour guests.[4] Rendang is also served among the Malay community. Rendang is traditionally prepared by the Minangkabau community during festive occasions such as traditional ceremonies, wedding feasts and Hari Raya (Eid al-Fitr).

Although culinary experts often describe rendang as a curry,[2][5] rendang is usually not considered as such in Indonesia since it is richer and contains less liquid than is normal for Indonesian curries.[6] In 2011 an online poll of 35,000 people by CNN International chose rendang as the number one dish of their “World’s 50 Most Delicious Foods (Readers’ Pick)” list.[7] In 2018, rendang is officially recognised as one of 5 national dish of Indonesia.[8]

Finished (click to enlarge). Added fried onion, fried egg, cherry tomato, and coriander with a dash of BonCabe. The noodles were just great – the flavor clung to them happily and they had the right chew and gauge. The flavor was that of rendang – sweet and hot and full of flavor. The meat? Dry beef chunks and beans combined to make things tasty and really wonderful. I’m thrilled – nice when you get hyped up about something and it ends up being really great. 5.0 ouf of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 089686045017.
