Directions

  1. Heat the oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Cook the onion and garlic in the hot oil until the onions are tender. Stir in the tomato; cook until soft, about 3 minutes. Crumble the ground beef into the pan and cook until brown, about 5 minutes. Add the water, potato, beef bouillon, fish sauce, salt, and pepper; reduce heat, cover, and simmer until the potatoes are tender, stirring occasionally, about 30 minutes.

We really didn't enjoy this recipe. It was edible, but none of the flavors were really interesting. I regret adding the ground beef in with the vegetables and then adding the rest of the ingredients; perhaps I should have browned the beef in a separate pan, drained, and then added it to the soup. As it was it was way too fatty. We won't make this again.

As the author of this dish, the fish sauce is supposed to be optional in place of salt for more of an asian flavor. I guess that got lost in allrecipe's editing. Anyway, feel free to add your favorite vegetables to the basic stew. I find that parboiling the potatoes first in a separate pot, then adding them near the end, prevents them from soaking up all the salt.

I didn't really care for this. It's pretty salty, and yes, not draining the ground beef makes it a bit fatty. I added cilantro because I had it on hand, but I don't think it made much difference.
