This Beef and Red Chili Paste is from my friend Katie Chin’s new cookbook, Every Thai Cooking: Quick and Easy Family Style Recipes from Tuttle Publishing. A few months ago, I met Katie in person for lunch and we had a wonderful time chatting about recipes, food, cooking, and our life stories. I love Katie; she is fun, bubbly, and cheery. PWhen she sent me the preview copy of her cookbook, I immediately fell in love with this Beef with Red Chili Paste recipe.
