Sundried beef strips, good with Beer Lao or as a snack. Made from beef flank steak (sometimes water buffalo meat is used), marinated in a mixture of garlic, fish sauce, ginger, sesame seed, sugar, salt and black pepper.
The strips are then left to dry in sunlight, then deep fried until lightly crispy and served with sticky rice or jaew maak len (tomato-based chili dip). It would be absolutely great when sitting on Mekong River, enjoying the Beer Lao and tasting Sien Savanh with friends. Tourists do not ever miss this special and delicious food when coming to Laos.
