This is a delicious and healthy soup, easy to make and great with rice wrapper spring rolls. Ask your butcher to thinly slice the sirloin for you, or put the meat in the freezer until it's half-frozen and slice it yourself--the thinner the better, as the meat cooks in the hot broth poured over the ingredients. You may change or substitute the ingredients to suit your type or SWAMI requirements as you like. I used lemon juice in place of the lemongrass, no cinnamon and freshly ground pepper in place of the peppercorns. Experiment and see what works for you. :)
