  • The oven baking times are based on my hot air oven. Experiment in your own to see if it needs a bit longer or shorter.
  • Make bigger batch. It's easier to make and since the meat takes four hours to cook it's nice to have more than one meal to show for it.
  • You can use pre-packed rendang bumbu or add the herbs yourself (garlic, ginger, kurkuma, pepper (white and black), coriander, lemongrass, chilli, salt and soja sauce).
