This dish is known as a 'slow cook' and is prepared over wood fires in the
villages. Keeping the pan covered and simmering slowly ensures that the
flavors are sealed in. It is a typical method of village cooking.

Marinade: 1. Mix the marinade ingredients together; pour over been, and
marinate for 15 minutes.

2. Put the beef and marinade in a pan, add the water and lemongrass, and
stir to mix. Bring to a boil, cover, and simmer over low heat for about 1
1/2 hours. Do not uncover the pan until beef is almost tender. Shake the
pan once or twice during this time.

3. When the beef is tender, add the tamarind liquid; adjust the salt if
necessary. Cook the beef for 5 minutes more.

Serve warm with rice and other dishes.
