The first step in making this dish is to make the basic sauce. The basic sauce is then used to make the beef and liver jerkies, and as dressing for the salad.

Basic Sauce:

-3 parts sugar
-3 parts soy sauce
-3 parts water
-1 part ginger (crushed)
-1 part chili sauce (optional)

*Boil everything together in a saucepan until sugar dissolves. Cool before using.

Beef Jerky:
Basic sauce + pepper + 5 spice + honey + minced garlic + mince shallots = marinate for jerky.

Liver Jerky:
Marinate 1/4" slices of beef liver in basic sauce for approx 1/2 hour. Simmer liver slices and marinate in a frying pan until all of the liquid evaporates. Add about 1tbs butter and fry until liver is golden, fragrant and jerky like in texture.

Basic sauce + minced garlic + red vinegar.

The Salad:
Shredded green papaya + chopped thai basil + beef jerky cut into thin strips + liver jerky cut into thin strips + dressing.

Thank you so much for your reply. Do you have a recipe for beef jerky from scratch? Since I've already marinated the raw beef, I guess I will put the beef on the rack and bake it to see how it turns out :-)

what is your definition of "from scratch"? The recipe above is for beef jerky from scratch....

from scratch...meaning use raw beef to make beef jerky.

In your recipe, you said marinate"beef jerky" with the sauce. That's why I asked you if you have the recipe to make beef jerky.

Hope that is clear :-)
