This recipe offers a contemporary twist on a rich and aromatic beef rendang, pairing New Zealand beef mince with crunchy cabbage, roasted peanuts, fresh mung beans, and a delicious and aromatic Rendang paste.

For those who are unfamiliar, Rendang is a Southeast Asian beef stew (similar to a curry), that is absolutely bursting with flavour. In it, a variety of spices (think lemongrass, cumin, turmeric, cardamom, and others) mix with creamy coconut milk, and fiery red chillis.

Serve with rice and soft wraps (or roti), or simply with just-cooked fresh green beans.
