Chef's tip

«The beef can be marinated well ahead of time. In fact, it can be frozen -raw- with the marinade for a later date.»

A popular Thai dish that is a surefire fan favourite: it just enough bite to keep you coming for more, and it is dead easy to make. This dish will become a family staple.
