Caramelized Black Pepper Beef


Caramelized Black Pepper Beef has become very popular in Thailand although originally brought from Vietnam. Many Vietnamese have immigrated to Thailand bring along their favourite recipes and often have opened restaurants.

I first ate this wonderful dish in a small family restaurant in Isan, Northeast Thailand. The restaurant was offering such as Vietnamese breakfasts and popular clay pot dishes and stir fries like this one.

The Slanted Door restaurant in San Francisco serves a Caramelized Black Pepper Beef by Chef Charles Phan and this is almost the same taste. I have altered the original Vietnamese taste with more garlic, ginger and of course Thai chiles. This is a spectacular Vietnamese dish that I have Thai’d Up to an intensely flavoured sweet and savory Thai peppered beef that will become a favourite of yours. You can adjust the heat upwards to Thai-it up a bit more like I do.

I do not like recipes that are overtly sweet but this one works with the balance of the chiles. If you don't have Thai chiles you could use Serrano chiles or even dried chile flakes.

This is a wonderful prep before dish for company meals. Be sure and have plenty of rice as the sauce is so amazing with layers of flavor that everyone will love.

Yield: 4 Servings

1/2 cup Coconut Sugar or Brown Sugar
3 Tbls Fish Sauce
1/4 cup Water
3 Tbls Rice Vinegar
