Great recipe! I made a gluten free version by substituting the soy sauce with tamari and using a gf stock. I served it with jasmine rice and mangetout.

was lovely I decided to make a papaya salad to go on the side, for mixing the puree I added little bit of lime juice left over from the lime made with the salad just was easier to mix together.

delicious. Agree it needs a few veg though to make it a meal if you don't have any sides. I put some cashews in at the end of cooking. Also had it with rice and it was lovely.

This tastes so much like food I have eaten in Vietnam. I don't eat red meat, so we use chicken breasts and it's delicious- plus doesn't take as long to cook. I do everything else as is. I don't add anything else, don't think it needs it. I always do it with rice though as it helps soak up the soupiness rather well. I love dishes like this. I don't bother chopping everything, I just stick 2 lemongrass stalks, coriander, chilli, garlic and ginger in a little food processor. Add a bit of oil to the pan and pour the mix in, let the flavours come out a bit then put large chunks of chicken breast in, I always let that brown slightly before I add the wet ingredients. Spot on though!

This is a lovely recipe. It says to leave it to simmer for an hour but for me it was too watery. So I just left it on the boil for about 30 mins to thicken the liquid and the beef was lovely and tender so it was perfect.

I mix a tablespoon of corn flour with some water to thicken the sauce. It gives a lovely glossy look to the sauce!

This is really nice and so easy! I found that adding a little oil when making the puree made it easier to puree rather than just chop in my food processor. I added a few cashews on top when i served up, which added a nice crunch.

I floured my beef before adding to thicken up the sauce.
