Saraman Beef with Kampot Pepper Sauce

4.9/5 from 15 Customers
Loading...
This Cambodian curry is similar to a Thai massaman curry - rich, dark and complex with lots of aromatic spices. The origin of the recipe is the same: Muslim traders travelled to the region and brought dried spices from India with them that were then mixed with the fresh local ingredients (ginger, lemongrass, lime leaves, etc) to make the dish. It’s served here with a fantastic Kampot pepper sauce to add extra zing and heat. Also on the side, we’ve got some prawn fritters known as num pa kon chien with a sweet, fiery chilli and garlic sauce to dip them in, and a fresh green mango salad.

Excellent recipe with rich, tender Saraman beef and crispy prawn fritters which were delicious. The accompaniments of a sweet chilli sauce, mango salad and Pak Choi went really well together and made this a special, tasty treat.

This was our favourite yet! Delicious mango salad, wonderful curry, not too difficult to prepare and I never thought I’d see the day when I made my very own sweet chilli sauce.

Really enjoying the surprise each month brings, the recipes are very clear and absolutely delicious and I feel like I’m learning to cook better at the same time!

Another great recipe. Liked the crunchy addition of the peanuts into the curry. Lovely flavours throughout, maybe we’ll add a bit less sugar next time.

We had a fantastic time preparing this feast - it was a 60th birthday present from my brother in law. What fun it was, what fabulous aromas in the house! It looked amazing, but the taste was phenomenal. Favourite meal ever - balanced spices and textures.
