Lao Jerky

Laotian beef jerky is a spicy treat that embodies the flavors of Laos.  It is very easy to make.  I read stories about how kids in school in the USA would happily trade with a Lao friend their lunch boxes, as everyone loved the beef jerky and sticky rice more than their peanut butter and jelly.

In Laos refrigeration is not available everywhere so dried meats and fish are the answer to that dilemma in small villages throughout Laos.  It was a real treat on our Laotian table and we make it often.
