Authentic Thai Coconut Soup
This was a HIT! Only change was lowfat coconut milk and a ton more red pepper since we like spicy foods. Do NOT omit the lime. It really tops this dish off. We used all authentic ingredients since we have Asian grocers local. The galongal and kaffir lime leaves really make a big difference.

Vietnamese Fresh Spring Rolls
These are absolutely perfect. I followed the advice of others and added shredded carrots and cucumber. Didn't do cilantro and mint. The basil was good enough. The sauces were surprisingly authentic as well.

Caldo de Res (Mexican Beef Soup)
This is a great recipe because you don't need to change much. I used 1 lb of beef shanks (on the bone) and 1 lb of lean stew meat. Since I used a pressure cooker, I adjusted the recipe to 4 cups of beef broth. Basically, I followed other pressure cooker stew recipes by dredging the meat in seasoned flower, then browning in batches. Next, I sauted the onions and garlic. After the onions were browned, I added the diced tomatoes and beef broth. Cooked it for 15 minutes after it pressured, then added the veggies and cooked for another 10 minutes. It was thicker than most people may like it, so a few cups of water could have been added as well. I personally like thicker soups, so loved the flavor.
