    "Rich and wonderfully fragrant, beef rendang is a traditional favourite across Indonesia, Singapore and Malaysia. Every family has their own recipe - but there's one thing everyone agrees on: this dish can't be rushed. We make ours with succulent chunks of lean diced British beef. We coat the meat in exotic spices, then slow cook it in its own juices for nine long hours. This infuses the beef with exotic flavours, and leaves it so tender it really does melt in the mouth. Five minutes before it's cooked, pour over our aromatic coconut and lemongrass sauce. Perfect served over spicy turmeric rice, with a sprinkling of zesty chopped coriander."

    Aaand this is what it looks like:

    Why are they pretending like I didn't buy this for £2.99?

    It's "beef rendang", they made it sound like it was cooked by Heston Bloomingwhathisface. I was looking forward to eating this!

    It is what it says it is, though. They can't control how you pictured it in your mind. :)

    It said half an hour in the instructions, not my fault lol. The packaging was full of false advertising.

    It actually tasted alright though, all things considered

    So probably worth another go at some point - I know my pork tenderloin just looked slimy and gross before I cooked it (marinade, it wasn’t actually slimy) but cooked it was decadent
