Cambogee Beef

Serving Size:

1 Beef
2 Red jalapeqos -- stems removed
4 Stalks lemongrass -- sliced thin
6 Lime leaves or the peel of 1 lime
4 Cloves garlic
1 Galangal
1/8 Oyster sauce
2 Sugar
1 Salt
2 Water
  • Cut beef into thin slices and thread onto skewers.
  • Mash or blend the Jalapeqo,lemon grass, lime leaves, garlic and galangal together. Combine the mixture with the remaining marinade ingredients. Place in a saucepan, and bring to a boil for 1 minute. Remove from the heat and let cool. Taste for sweetness; it should be present but not dominant.
  • Marinate the beef in the refrigerator for at least one hour.
  • Grill the skewers over hot coals, keeping the beef at least four inches from the heat lest the sugar burn, until desired doneness.
  • Serving suggestion: Before cooking, stick a chunk of fresh pineapple on the end of each skewer. Serve with Green Mango Salad and steamed rice.
  • NOTES : Use a mortar and pestle to combine the ingredients or if you lack one, use a blender. Heat scale: Medium
