rendang beef over carrot noodles
a mild coconut curry with singapore history according to box-slash-google-for-three-minutes-research. it was mild, with a typical curry blend tang and a smoothed edge from the coconut. i added some red onion at the beginning (pulped out and added some flava) and some brocolli at the end (chez diggs the b).
i was going to do rice, but then remembered i had the carrot noodles. honestly, when you cook from a box, you should not be surprised by this. the carrot noodles were the best part of the meal.
the curry needed a slurry to thicken more and i needed to buy a fattier cut o' beef to avoid the drying out part.
i did put the broccoli in the soup at the right time to keep it crisp tender! it didn't totally suck.
and i had scallions. garnish, damnit! for a wednesday.
