Neua Pad Prik - beef with chilis

This is a quick, and fairly mild preparation for beef. It can also be 
prepared with pork. 

The prik chi fa used are a mild chili, about the length of a finger, 
often called a "Thai Jalapeno" and "ordinary" jalapenos make a 
reasonable substitute. 

The seasoned fish sauce is the fish sauce from nam pla prik, found on 
any table in Thailand. If you don't have any then take 4 tablespoons of 
fish sauce, add a tablespoon of green prik ki nu ('birdseye chilis'), 
sliced thinly, store in a stoppered jar for a week in the refrigerator, 
then it is ready to use. The excess can be used as a condiment for this
