Straight from a local cafe, I came across a seriously filling plate of Beef Rendang and Ulam Raja from Sabah Malaysia
Beef Rendang has is origins in Indonesia, just don’t tell anyone in Malaysia as it’s one of the favorites in Sabah (source: wikipedia). And, I can taste why.
Strips of beef are cooked in spices and coconut milk until it’s been completely reduced. Thus infusing the meat with an incredible rich flavor.
Beef Rendang is extremely tender!
The meat itself becomes so tender is breaks apart with ease. Already it’s become another favorite of mine here. Not just because of the taste, but also because of the sizable portions.
Bring on the vegetables
This particular dish came served with some Ulam Raja, a Spanish vegetable dish meaning Kings Salad. The plant itself grows like wildfire all over Malaysia and makes it a choice vegetable. To me it is very similar to spinach.
The combination of the spicy Beef Rendang and crunchy Ulam Raja makes this a great meal in Sabah, Malaysia.
