Beef Larp

This is a modified version (meaning we took out the crazy ingredients that are hard to find in the states) of the traditional dish that that Tami made at a cooking class in Laos. It can be made with chicken, fish, tofu or pork.

2 tables spoons beef stock
1 medium lime or lemon
bean sprouts
1 bunch green onions
2 shallots
2 cloves garlic
1 bunch fresh coriander (or cilantro), finely chopped
2 stalks of lemongrass, thinly sliced (white part only)
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon fish sauce


Cook the meat with the beef stock and lemon or lime juice
Add bean sprout and cook briefly
Turn off heat
Add the remaining ingredients, mixing thoroughly
Serve on a bed of greens
