Beef Rendang Slow Cooker Recipe


Serves 4

Active Time 15 minutes

Saute; Pressure/Manual (High) Natural/Quick Release

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • ¾ cup finely minced onions
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 small jalapeno or serrano chile, seeded, if desired, and minced
  • 1 (1.2-ounce) package rendang curry paste
  • 1 pound skirt steak, cut into 2-inch chunks
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 cup full-fat coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened shredded coconut, toasted, for garnish


  1. Select SAUTE on the Instant Pot
  2. When the pot is hot, add the oil
  3. When the oil is hot, add the onions, ginger, garlic, and jalapeno, stirring to coat with the oil
  4. Add the curry paste
  5. Cook, stirring, until the curry paste is lightly toasted, 3 to 4 minutes
  6. Add the steak and cook, stirring to coat with the spices, for about 2 minutes
  7. Pour in ¼ cup of the water and stir to scrape up the browned bits from the bottom of the pot
  8. Not only do these browned bits add flavor to the finished dish, but if you leave any browned bits at the bottom, the pot will not come to pressure
  9. Add the remaining ¼ cup water and ½ cup of the coconut milk
  10. Select CANCEL
  11. Secure the lid on the pot
  12. Close the pressure-release valve
  13. Select MANUAL and set the pot at HIGH pressure for 25 minutes
  14. At the end of the cooking time, allow the pot to sit undisturbed for 10 minutes, then release any remaining pressure
  15. If you want the dish a little less saucy, select SAUTE to cook off some of the water
  16. Add the remaining ½ cup coconut milk and stir well to combine
  17. Select CANCEL
  18. Divide among four bowls and garnish with the shredded coconut before serving
