If you visit Cambodia, you can easily find these beef sticks at the night markets as street foods. Over the years many five star restaurants have included this dish on their menu. It's so fragrant, you can smell them from a distance. This was something I always hoped for when I was young. Before my mum ran her own shop, we were in a very hard situation, we didn't always have meat on our dining table and every time I smelt the Lemongrass Beef Stick, my tummy started rumbling like crazy. As a child I was always telling myself, I had to earn more money to eat the Beef Stick everyday when I grew up, won't you believe it!!! Now I just want to share this memory with you.
Please note these are an entree size.
Contains: Tree nuts and tree nut products other than coconut from the fruit of the palm, Fish and fish products (eg fish sauce)
Defrost in the fridge over night then put on the grill or pan fried on a medium heat 4-5 minutes each side or until it's golden brown. (Careful not to over cook your beef) Serve with any kind of salad or best with papaya salad (not included) as a tasty light meal or entree.
About your cook, Iris:
Hi, I'm Iris. I'm originally from Cambodia. My first memory of connecting with food was when I was little and my mum was always busy in her shop, so she left the house work and cooking to me. As the eldest child in the family, I had to learn to cook and did the shopping as guided by mum. I remember I learnt to cook my first curry chicken when I was just 12 years old. At first, I wasn't sure that I loved cooking because it was like a duty to me. Cooking really inspired me when I had my own kids. I'm a mum of three and my husband and kids love my food, this has inspired me the most and allows me to learn more about different foods and always cook with love.
