    dianegrapegrower's Note:

    Adpated from "Simply THAI Cooking" by Wandee Young and Byron Ayanoglu. This excellent beef curry is a bit time consuming to prepare. The complex seasonings, though, are a real treat, and make this dish worth the time invested. I've tweaked slightly as the portion sizes were a bit small in my family's opinion. Otherwise, the recipe is a published in the book. (edited to correct fish sauce amount 3/19/09)

      Never cooked Thai food before this recipe. It was good but the amount of fish sauce was listed incorrectly (had since been corrected) so it was a bit pungent. Will make again.

      Great dish. I've spent a lot of time in Thailand, and this is as good as any beef dish I ever had in Korat. Thanks for posting.
