Beef Soup|Stew with Potatoes & Carrots

This is my take on Beef Soup/Stew with Potatoes and Carrots ​(Soup Ko Domlong & Karot) ស្ងោរស៊ុបគោដំលូងនឹងក៉ារត់. I’m making it the Asian style with spices like coriander seeds, whole peppercorn, ginger, garlic and fish sauce. If you prefer a stew (thick) consistency, decrease the amount of water to about 8-9 cups. I prefer a soup (more liquid) consistency as it usually takes several servings before I finish the pot. During the reheating process the liquid tends to evaporate a little bit.

The rich taste of long-simmered, fork tender beef in the last hour of cooking make this soup/stew hearty and extra delicious! This soup/stew can be enjoyed as a main dish with some toasty bread or as part of a meal with steamed rice. You can even add some rice noodles and turn it into a hearty beef noodle soup. :)

Tip: Use a tea/herb mesh ball (can be purchase at Walmart for about $2), to catch all the little spices so you don’t have to dig it out later.

Beef Soup|Stew with Potatoes & Carrots
(Soup Ko Domlong & Karot) ស្ងោរស៊ុបគោដំលូងនឹងក៉ារត់

2 lbs beef short ribs, trim excess fat and discard if any
10 cups water
2 tablespoons oil
2 carrots, cut into 1 inch pieces
2 red potatoes, cut into big chunks
1 small onion, cut in half
1 beef bouillon cube
cilantro sprigs to garnish

Spices (add to tea/herb mesh ball)
4 cloves of garlic
1 teaspoon whole black peppercorn
1 teaspoon coriander seeds
1 inch piece ginger

2 tablespoons sugar
4 tablespoons fish sauce
1 tablespoon dark soy sauce

Heat a heavy pan with oil and and beef. Sear each side 2-3 minutes. Transfer seared meat to a large pot and add 10 cups of water and bring it to a boil.

Add potatoes, carrots, onions and the tea/herb mesh ball (containing spices). Bring them all to a rolling boil again then cover and simmer for 2 hours or more. The longer you simmer the tender the beef gets. However if you wish to simmer for longer than 2 hours then do not add the carrots and potatoes until half way into the simmer as you don’t want the vegetables to get all soft and mushy.

About 10 minutes before serving add seasonings. To serve ladle to a bowl and garnish with cilantro sprigs.
