This is not the world’s daintiest, most elegant soup. It’s meaty, chunky, spicy, with an in-your-face belt of chilli that lingers in the mouth like a sultry, warm wind. When you’ve had a bowl of this, you really know you’ve eaten.

Ingredients

  • 500 g (1 lb) stewing beef
  • 2 tbsp peanut oil

Method

Cut beef into bite-size cubes, roughly 2.5 cm (1 inch) square.

In a saucepan, heat oil and stir fry ginger and garlic for 20 seconds, then add beef and stir fry for 2 to 3 minutes. Add chilli bean
