Jackfruit Rendang Stew

This is a jackfruit version of the original Indonesian beef rendang. The flesh of this tropical tree fruit easily absorbs all flavours. And when it’s simmered long enough, it will get a meaty texture. You won’t miss the beef! It does need some time, so it’s a great option for the weekend. You can find it in the canned vegetable section at the supermarket.
