This is GREAT!

This was delicious! My husband is a chef and said I can make this anytime! Followed the recipe exactly except I also halved the red pepper for my son's sake. It's yummy!

New Family Favorite

Finally I've found a easy creamy rendang with a little kick of chilli. Just perfect. Even a fussy Husband says " Oh Yeah ! " This rendang is bound to be a new Family Favorite.
