This is ginger beef stir fry with a big nod to Vietnamese cooking. Big, bold tastes meet sizzling beef in a spicy flavour explosion that’s sure to put a big grin on your face. It put a big grin on my face the first time I tried it.
Momofuku pork belly is so good a restaurant empire was built on it. Melting tender and deeply flavoured. And this is how they do it. For real. I asked. At the restaurant.
Mi bo kho is beef stew with a delicious Vietnamese twist. Beef stew with the haunting flavours of lemongrass and star anise. Background notes of curry and just a hint of heat. So good. Comfort food done Vietnamese style.
Spicy Thai beef salad. Beef. Lime. Chili. Mint. Cilantro. It all comes together in one big flavour bomb. Almost too much but it works. And it works well.
Restaurant style aloo keema is a nicely spiced, dry Indian potato and beef or lamb curry that makes a nice change to the usual suspects.
Neapolitan ragu is a great alternative to the heavier and more complicated ragu bolognese. It’s all about tomatoes and pork. A bit of veal and some white wine. Maybe an onion. No garlic, no basil, no oregano. No secret ingredients. Just tomato and meat flavour. Clean. Pure. Delicious. Try it. You’ll be surprised how good easy tastes.
