Rendang is one of the typical foods of the Minangkabau people in West Sumatra. The cooking process takes about 6-7 hours at a temperature of 80-90 o C, which decreases the nutritional level. This long process enables the perfect cooking of the meat. White oyster mushrooms can be used as a substitute for rendang meat because the vegetable protein contains lots of fibre, and the texture is similar to meat. Based on the results of the hedonic test on 72 respondents under and above 45 years old, the favourite u rite oyster mushroom is rendang cooked for 7 hours. The consumer acceptance of the taste, colour, aroma and texture has the highest presentation. This result is supported by the t-test analysis with the significance number. Furthermore, the chemical analysis between white oyster mushroom rendang and beef rendang showed that white oyster mushroom rendang had a lower FFA and moisture content.
