    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    • 3 dried New Mexico chiles, soaked, seeded and deveined
    • 3 garlic cloves, coarsely chopped
    • 1 large shallot, coarsely chopped
    • 1/2 cup water



    1. 1
      Put the beef in a medium bowl. Grind the ginger slices with a mortar and pestle, adding them a few at a time until you have extracted most of the juice, or use a mini-chop to make a wet paste. Squeeze the juice from the fibers (you should have 1 1/2 to 2 tablespoons) and stir it into the beef; discard the ginger solids. Let the beef marinate for at least 10 minutes.
    2. 2
      Meanwhile, make the paste: Blend all the ingredients in a blender until smooth, 2 to 3 minutes.
    3. 3
      Heat the oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add the paste and cook, stirring occasionally, until the flavors are released, about 2 minutes. Stir in the beef, sugar, fish sauce, soy sauce, salt, pepper and broth. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat to low and simmer, partially covered, until the liquid is reduced by half, about 40 minutes.
    4. 4
      Add the coconut and tamarind juices and cook for another 20 minutes. If the sauce is too thin at this point, increase the heat and reduce further; the sauce should be fairly thick.
    5. 5
      Garnish with cilantro sprigs and serve with cucumber slices and rice.

      What a superb combination of flavors -- a little spicy, full of coconut sweetness, mixed with the tangy/tart flavor of tamarind. I love trying recipes that are different than anything I've made before, and this did not disappoint. I would advise using only 1/2 the amount of oil, however, since there was a quite a bit of oil bubbling on the top of the stew. Besides that, it was perfect!
