    ellie_'s Note:

    Something different to do with cubed beef.This Spicy beef and carrots dish is delicious over egg noddles or rice. Most of these Asian ingredients are available in the Asian food aisle in a grocery store or at an Asian food store. Recipe Source: Bon Appetit (March 1987)

      Wonderful! I found it quite enjoyable to find something Thai that wasn't either curried or an appetizer or soup. The flavors in this were wonderfully balanced and was not overly spicy. We did add some chile paste after cooking since I was using it in another dish I cooked. It was great over rice for us, but I am wondering if it would be even more fabulous still if it had some potatoes chunked up in it and served in a bowl for the homestyle comfort flavor of stew, if only in Asian style. Thanks loads!
