    Wow, this looks divine! I need a few more Asian dishes on my blog, but the trouble is that all my favourite recipes are summery and it is far too cold in England at the moment for the likes of Larp gai. This, however, looks like the perfect winter warmer. I will have to try it out and feedback.

    Just one question, what is beef ‘slice’, is this actually a cut of beef? I googled it and didn’t find anythibg particularly helpful.

  3. Wow, this looks amazing. That beef looks so tender. I’m all for meal that are easy to cook. I very much like the idea of trying it with crispy bread!
