Steak Salad Recipe
Tips and Techniques
- We use inexpensive flat steak when we buy it just for the recipe, but use any left over steak.
- Use either red or yellow onion.
Broil or grill the steak until medium rare. When cooked, slice the steak against the grain into very thin slices .
The amount of onion that you should add should be equal to the amount of meat. Mince most of the cilantro and the mint, but set aside a few sprigs of cilantro and mint for a garnish. Put the beef, onion, cilantro, mint, fish sauce, chili pepper and nam prik pow in a bowl and mix together.
Add 3/4 of a lime and taste. Depending on how sour and how juicy your lime is, you might need more. If you need more lime, keep adding just a little. This dish should taste a little hot, and well balanced between the lime and the fish sauce. Serve warm or cold.
