Recipe: Lao Beef Stew


This Week's Film: Air America
Cuisine: Laotian

This spicy stew is intended for cooking water buffalo. But beef is used here, since it is similar in taste and texture, and much more readily available. Either way, the ginger and jalapenos give the dish its peppery spice, the fish sauce gives it a salty, savory component, and a splash of lime just before serving brightens the broth with a hint of citrus.
