Sliced Beef Soup ~ Sup Daging @ My Fav Ala-Thai #2

My low carbo fix for supper cravings!
This is what I will order if I want something light for the tummy. I know....  'light'... *laughing cheekily*

Ala-Thai eateries usually will have a big pot of beef broth in their kitchen, mainly from boiling the beef chunk for their beef stir fry dishes.

To make this soup, some restaurants will slice the beef chunk thinly and use it to serve the guests, but some will use fresh beef slices. It depends on where you have it.
Instead I chose to make a meat free spice broth, and add in lots of fresh beef later. Restaurants usually will only give you a few slivers of meat. You can make the broth in advance, and assemble it just before meal time.

The soup is hearty, filled with fresh vegetables and slices of meat. It feels warming on a rainy day with the spices and chilli. I used local beef tenderloin, of which is grass fed. Taste so good!
