Sumatran-Style Beef Rendang
Use serrano or Holland chile peppers instead of the Thai chiles if preferred. Substitute 1 1/2 teaspoons ground turmeric for the fresh turmeric if desired.
Depending on your blender's capacity, you may have to make the spice paste in 2 batches and combine them together.
Substitute beef sirloin for the rump if desired. Do not use stew meat. Substitute chicken (white or dark meat), cut into bite-size pieces, for the beef if desired. You can also use a whole chicken, de-boned and cut into pieces.
If you don't use light coconut milk, you may want to skim off some of the fat rendered from the milk in step 3.
