A German Halbtrocken for a Cambodian Dish

We tried an interesting recipe from Rick Stein’s Far Eastern Odyssey.  Cambodian Marinated Beef with a Lime and Black Pepper Dipping Sauce.  The sauce contained palm sugar and tomato ketchup so we considered red wines were not in the running and neither were most dry whites.  We had a hunch that the bottle of Riesling Halbtrocken 2009 from Lidl in the fridge might be OK and it was.  It even coped with the flavour combinations from the marinated steak and the lime and pepper dipping sauce.  It’s always good to have some medium dry wines around for these type of dishes.
