Beef Cheek Rendang with Spaghetti

Make on Fresco

Nothing but the curry paste made using your Thermie in this one. So really, should you not have a Thermomix, this one is for you! I love rendang. Especially this one. I was amazed when I first had this as it is traditionally served on spaghetti with the parmesan, even in Bali. SO fascinating, this clash of food cultures that works so very well. Of course I doubt there is a village in Bali that would call this theirs, and Rendang can be very spicy if you make it so. Therefore feel free to add more chillies to taste.

I think you will love this one. Let me know!

Place 200 grams of the curry paste into the bottom of a slow cooker with the coconut cream. Add the beef cheeks and turn them to coat with the bumbu mixture.


Add onions and garlic, cover and cook on high for 8 hours. Stir occasionally and turn the meat over to coat well with all the juice.


When ready to serve, prepare the spaghetti as per package directions.


Fry the curry leaves in hot oil until crispy but still bright green and drain on a paper towel.


Wilt the spinach in the hot rendang sauce until softened.


Assemble all in large bowls, spaghetti, beef cheek, sauce, spinach, more sauce, plenty of parmesan, the curry leaves, chilli and lime cheeks to garnish.
