Crab in Beer Broth (Cua Hap Bia)

THE INGREDIENTS:
6 whole large crabs, rinsed and cleaned
6 ounces beer 2 medium tomatoes, diced
1 large onion, sliced
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 small red chilies, sliced
1 cup watercress
1 tablespoon fried garlic or shallots
Marinade:
salt
pepper
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon oyster sauce
3 cloves garlic, finely sliced

Marinate the crab (almost any variety of hard-shell crab will do) with salt, pepper, oyster sauce, sesame oil and a clove of garlic for 1 hour.
Saute remaining garlic and onion in oil for 2-3 minutes, or until it's brown. Add the crab and chiles and continue frying. After a few minutes, add the beer and cover it all. Reduce heat, and cook for 10 minutes and then add the tomatoes. Cover it again and cook for another 5 minutes.
Serve the dish in bowls, adding a little of the broth. Garnish it with fried garlic and some watercress.

Enjoy!
