    This authentic beef satay recipe will blow you away with its abundant flavor and tenderness!

    This easy beef recipe is known in Thailand as "Weeping Tiger Beef". I've heard various stories to back up the name, one that the chilies in the sauce made a tiger weep; the other is that a tiger cried when a hunter killed and took away his cow.

    Rendang is one of the most flavorful curries in the world. If you're a curry fan, it's a must-try. Rendang has its roots in Indonesian/Malaysian cuisine but is also popular in Thailand, Singapore, Vietnam, Burma, Sri Lanka, and other Asian countries. This authentic recipe turns out tender and simply inundated with taste. It comes courtesy of my husband's family (with roots in Malaysia & Thailand) who have shared with me not only the spice paste but also their secret for making...MORE the beef tender. I hope you love it as much as we do!
