Ravenous Couple

I love comments.

The other day I posted about our first visit to Super Pho and was delighted to see a comment from Ravenous Couple. Of course, I had to go visit their blog to see who they are and... wow. I'm new to Vietnamese food, and don't get to L.A. often - ok, almost NEVER - but I love their blog. 

At home we've been exploring Asian cooking. In the past two weeks Frank has brought some interesting items home from the grocery store: two different kinds of hoisin sauce, a big bottle of sesame oil (a little goes a long way and we've got enough to last us several years), various spices and seasonings...

A couple nights ago he made a beef stir fry that was outstanding. After many guinea pig dinners, we think he finally got the seasoning just right. Ok, honestly, the beef cut was wrong for the dish and the fast cooking made it chewy. Very chewy. Think Violet Beauregarde and her meal flavored gum at Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory. For a while I was worried that we would end the meat chewing with the flavor of blueberry pie and be rolled out of the house to be squished...

But the flavor was perfect!

Anyway, back to Ravenous Couple. Love the blog, added it to my Google Reader, and recommending you take a look.

Hey Frank, can we try some Thit Kho? Looks tasty.
