While we were in San Jose to visit our relatives yesterday, I spotted a couple of places that sell Vietnamese Beef and Liver Jerky at the Vietnamese Grand Century Mall. I immediately thought of my papaya salad recipe and wonder how I can improve on the sauce; it has the right taste but I can't seem to get the saltiness just right; I think it needs to be just a tad lighter. So, I bought some Beef and Liver Jerky and got a few green papayas at an Asian grocery store nearby. Realizing that I have church on Sunday, I will test out the sauce recipe at church.
This morning, my 4 year-old daughter and I woke up at 8:00 am and started to experiment on the sauce with different ingredients that I didn't use in my previous sauce recipe. While my mother-in-law helped us shred the fresh green papaya, my daughter helped out as the official taster; she actually has quite a reliable taste when it comes to food.
I made a revision to the previous Gỏi Đu Đủ Khô Bò Gan Cháy recipe. Hop over here for the Recipe.
