Green Papaya

School started up again and i've been inundated with homework and books to read so its hard to find time to experiement in the kitchen. Instead, i've taken that semi homemade route with a popular Vietnamese dish, Green Papaya Salad with Beef Jerky.





Ingredients:

1 papaya, shredded (some stores sell them shredded)
1 bag of beef jerky (Hong Ha brand is ok)
Basil (rau que)
Vietnamese Coriander (rau ram)
Soy Sauce
Water
Sugar
Red Vinegar
Red Chili Sauce (Sriracha)
Garlic

Preparation:

  1. Mix shredded papaya with chopped basil and Vietnamese Coriander.
  2. Cut beef jerky into small strips and put on top of the papaya mix in a nice plate.
  3. For the sauce mix 1 portion of soy sauce, 1 portion of water, 1/2 portion of sugar, and 1/2 portion of red vinegar then add a couple slices of garlics and chili sauce to taste. If you like the sauce extra spice, cut a couple of red chilis and add to the sauce.

I've never thought of using beef jerky like that. Inventive.

You use soy sauce? I use fish sauce. Been meaning to make this for a while since I bought that VNese beef jerky for it.
