La`ai's Samoan Sapasui


This tasty dish has many variations and is great alone or with any Asian meal or similar sides.

2 lbs. chopped beef (chuck steak) or chicken
5 cloves garlic (chopped)

1 oz ginger – grated1 cup mixed carrots and peas*

1 cup soy sauce

(veggies can be fresh or frozen,

or you can also use chopped cabbage)

1 cup beef or chicken broth

6 3.8 oz. bags of Long Rice Noodles

3 Tbsp. oil


Prepare noodles – bring 3 quarts water to a boil. Add noodles and turn off heat. Soak noodles until softened.


Sauté meat in oil for 3 minutes. Add garlic and ginger and continue cooking for 2 more minutes. Add broth and soy sauce and cook 5 more minutes. Drain noodles and stir into meat mixture with vegetables. (You may have to add more liquid as needed as the noodles may absorb some of the liquid.)


* La`ai chose canned vegetables in this recipe in keeping with Samoan ‘tradition.’ In other words, fresh and frozen vegetables can be difficult to come by in Samoa for various reasons. Canned, Frozen, or fresh. The choice is yours!

** Depending on your cut of meat, you may boil tougher cuts for ½ hour before sautéing.6-8 servings
