Sambal Sweet Chile Sauce
In the March 2009 issue of Martha Stewart Living magazine, this recipe was featured along with a suggestion to purchase Sambal Oelek from ImportFood.com. The endorsement of American icon Martha Stewart is an honor, and we're happy to share this with you.
We've appreciated the recipes of Martha Stewart for years, especially starting in 2004 when we discovered her "Annual Recipes" book contained so many good recipes that we were constantly referring to it. This recipe for sweetened, salty chile sauce really hits the tongue well, and it goes with just about everything especially spooned into soups such as Vietnamese Pho.
Vietnamese-Style Beef Noodle Soup
We LOVE this recipe and so does our kids. We were able to get excellent quality beef short ribs from a local butcher, get the best possible meat for excellent results. The recipe below makes a fairy mild soup, but you can spice it up with more sambal oelek and/or Thai chile peppers. Vermicelli noodles go perfectly with the beef, and you can add different kinds of greens to suit your taste.
