Rendang – The Most Delicious Food in The World

After one year of doing nothing to this domain and almost 2 months of being under repaired, finally this domain is having its own hosting under my name. I am happy with it though I lost the old URL ( and all the files. Never mind 😉

As urang awak/Minang (people originally from West Sumatra) I am proud that Rendang chosen as the most delicious food in the world by CNN‘s readers around the world, hence this post.

The first time I cooked Rendang was in 2007 after getting the recipe written by mom. My first attempt was a success hence I dared myself to cook 3kg Rendang for celebrating Eidul Fitri 2007. It was also a big hit as they said mine was a real West Sumatran Rendang. Yay! Then everytime I cooked it, I got nothing but thumbs up. Thanks to my mom recipe 😉

The recipe in English will be updated soon as at the moment I am busy in preparing my departure back to Bremen. But don’t be sad since you can find the recipe in Bahasa Indonesia by clicking this link. Read it carefully and give yourself a try. My mom’s recipe is very simple and easy to be followed. Lots of friends have tried it and all of them are happy with the result.

Believe me, it is as scrumptious as it looks 😉

I’m sending this Rendang for Indonesian Foodblogger Challenge Chapter 1 with Food by Its Country as the theme.

    • enak banget deh, udah byk yg nyobain resep nyokap ini dan semuanya puasss…

  2. Sefa…!
    Bagus banget fotonya. To be honest, gw lebih bisa menikmati food photography yang gak terlalu banyak props-nya. Yang model begini nih, oke banget. Yang bisa nampakin detail makanannya…

    • Lisa, makasih pujiannya.. tersanjung loh dirimu yg muji. Gue sendiri sih gak keberatan foto makanan dg banyak props, asal nyampe aja pesan yg ingin dikasih tau ke viewernya.. yaitu si makanan :)

      • Nah, itu dia yang kadang kadang terabaikan. Hehehe…

        • hahaha… betul, gak gampang juga sih memang dan terlebih banyak orang yg jadi imitator :)
          dirimu pinter design scrapbook ya… keren loh

  3. Hadehh, bener2 deh..fotonya bikin ngacai sangat…

    thank you for your invitation, I’ll start to take a look there

  6. Ya ampun, Fa, ternyata bikin rendang segampang ini? *sombong* Hihi… Tapi beneran gue baru tau, tidak seribet yang gue bayangkan. Selama ini gue menggantungkan diri sama bumbu rendang buatan ibu pasar, dan hasilnya oke juga sih tapi jadi penasaran pengen bikin sendiri dari bumbunya juga.

    Makasih banyak resepnya, segera dicoba dan mau pamer ke mama yang lagi ada di Surabaya 😀

    • memang gampang, tapi butuh waktu aja biar jadi item..
      ayooo bikin, ditunggu laporannya *gaya ibu guru*

  7. Hi Sefa,

    I’ve found your site through a link on Foodgawker. This recipe looks really delicious and I’d love to cook it for my family. However I’m unfortunately lacking the necessary language skills. 😉

    Are you still planning to translate the recipe to English? I would really appreciate it.

    Best regards,

    • Hi Ben, sorry for delaying in replying your question.
      I just came from Germany and nowadays busy with some errands. Can you please wait until the end of this month?

      Btw, thank you for dropping by.

      • Hi Sefa,

        no worries, take your time. There are more important things than translating a recipe. 😉

        I’ll gladly wait until you have the time for it – judging from the pictures it’s definitivly worth the wait!

        • Hi Ben, thanks for your patience.
          I will try my best, my hands are full now :)
