    Sue Lau's Note:

    These have a great char-grilled flavor and are perfect for summertime and outdoor cooking. A perfect accompaniment would be Cambodian grilled corn (see recipe on Zaar).

      Another awesome recipe, Sue! I did have to omit the carrots (the only veggie I don't like on the planet), but the end result was amazing. The nuac cham sauce for dipping is a must! Fabulous! Thanks Sue!

      This recipe is great! I would, however, suggest that the cooking time is reduced, to avoid any dryness. We used extra lean beef, but perhaps regular beef would have given it a bit more moisture. The dipping sauce was perfect! We also tried it with the Cambodian Grilled Corn and it was awesome!

      This recipe was so-so. Not as authentic, very hard & slightly dry. Kinda a waste of time.
