SE ASIA: Sien Savanh

Sien Savanh is Lao Beef Jerky! MmMmMm Good! In Laos, thin strips of meat are strung onto a bamboo string and then dried in the sun. Well, I cut out the sun and the bamboo and used a dehydrator! Here's how I did it:

  • 1 pound beef flank steak (I used venison)*-thinly sliced into long strips
  • 4 cloves of garlic *-crushed then diced
  • 1 small knuckle of ginger *-chopped and ground into paste
  • 6 tablespoons soy sauce
  • huge handful of sesame seeds
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • a few pinches of salt
  • 3 tablespoons fresh ground black pepper
In a pan add all the ingredients, mix well, and marinate in the fridge overnight. If you have a dehydrator then use this - otherwise dry in the sun for an entire day (turn strips once to get both sides). ENJOY! These are really good when dipped into the Jaew Mak Len.
