Jeow is a lot of things, but mainly any sort of dipping sauce, typically made with char-grilled veggies. Sometimes spicy. Sometimes not. It could be vegetarian or it could be made with crushed beetles. Or anything in between. Great for dipping balls of sticky rice into. A Laotian staple. This is a good base sauce, feel free to add flavors and experiment. Laos is a landlocked country in Southeast Asia, bordered by Burma and China to the northwest, Vietnam to the east, Cambodia to the south, and Thailand to the west.
