The Cambodian Spicy Beef and Aubergine Stew, or known as Samlaw Machou Kroeung , is a fantastic one dish wonder with its multitude tastes of tanginess, salty and spicy. The beef and the egg plants make a wonderful combination when cooked with the traditional Kroeung – the iconic Cambodian marinade paste and the Tuk Trey dipping sauce.
This dish involves a multi-step process, but when it all comes together, the flavors will pleasantly surprise you. Cook a big portion, as it keeps well in the freezer for up to a month.
