and marinate for 15 minutes.

2. Put the beef and marinade in a pan, add the water and lemongrass,
and stir to mix. Bring to a boil, cover, and simmer over low heat
for about 1 1/2 hours. Do not uncover the pan until beef is almost
tender. Shake the pan once or twice during this time.

3. When the beef is tender, add the tamarind liquid; adjust the salt
if necessary. Cook the beef for 5 minutes more.

Serve warm with rice and other dishes.

Food Tips of the Week

Diet hints and tips

In deciding on a diet, it is essential to attempt to lower your consumption of fat, salt and refined carbohydrates.
Some reduced carb diet pointers:
* Fiber is crucial Decreasing the carbohydrates in your diet usually leads to reduction in fiber also. Look at low carb recipes that are rich in fiber to restore the balance.

* Food labels can be misleading Watch out for food packaging that boasts to be 'low carb' - check the nutritional information figures on the back of the product. Many are only marginally less and in some instances still greater than a competitors normal brand. Also, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' does not always mean 'low carb' - often the carbs are just the same.
