Nuer Sawan (Heavenly Beef)

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Beef, Thai

 Ingredients List

  • 1 lb Lean Beef
  • 2 ts Ground Coriander Seeds
  • 1/2 ts Ground Cumin - Coarse
  • 1 tb Good Quality Fish Sauce
  • 1/2 c Sugar
  • Oil for Frying


Wash beef, and trim of all fat and gristle. Use a very sharp knife, slice
the beef into fairly large, very thin, sheets. Place the pieces of beef
into a bowl and add fish sauce. Mix, and lightly knead by hand till well
mixed and the beef had "soften". Add sugar, and continue to knead till the
sugar is dissolved and well mixed in. To taste, take a small piece, and fry
till done, and taste. Adjust tastes, if required, by adding more sugar or
fish sauce to the uncooked beef.

Add coarsely ground coriander seeds and cumin. Mix together well. Remove
the beef pieces, spread out in a single layer on a wire rack and dry in the
sun. When top side is dry, turn the beef pieces over to dry the other side.
Caution....do NOT over-dry, or the end result will be dry and hard.

When properly dried, the beef may be stored in airtight container -
refrigeration is recommended. To serve, add a little oil to a hot pan, and
add the beef pieces when the oil is hot. Use medium to low heat, and fry
till the beef pieces are cooked and crispy. Remove from pan, and drain of
excess oil. Blot off remaining oil with paper towels, and serve when cool.
