Indonesian Coconut-Curry Beef

This is a simplified version of beef rendang, a dry-style curry usually involving a long, slow simmer in coconut milk spiked with an aromatic spice paste. The fall-apart tender beef is left coated with a thick, rich and intensely flavorful sauce. Toasted coconut is a key flavoring in the dish; we use the Instant Pot's sauté function to toast the coconut as the first step, then turn off the pot by pressing Cancel; the residual heat is ideal for gently cooking the aromatics and spices. Serve the curry with plenty of steamed rice.

Tip

Don't use sweetened shredded coconut. It's sugariness will cause the coconut to scorch during toasting and will throw off the flavor balance in the dish.
