This is a recipe for a hot and sour beef salad. The fresh lime juice in the dressing is amazing. You can adjust the heat according to your taste preference. If you want it hotter, you can use fresh red Serrano chili, chopped. Or if you prefer a milder version, you can use dried crushed red pepper. This is another addictive salad. But it's not a meal to feel guilty about.
Thai Beef Salad
2 pounds steak ( I used rib eye, sirloin would work well also)
Juice of 1 juicy lime (about 1/4 cup)
1 large tomato, sliced thin
2 stems green onion, chopped fine (white and green parts)
4 stalks cilantro, chopped fine (optional)
1 tablespoon red crushed chili
3 tablespoons fish sauce
1 small head of lettuce (I used mixed baby greens)
Broil steak in oven until it is done the way you like it (mine is medium well, although the picture would have been prettier if it were medium rare). Slice thin.
In medium bowl, combine lime juice, fish sauce, green onion, cilantro, and red chili
First toss the beef slices in the sauce, and set aside.
Then toss the lettuce and tomato in the sauce and arrange on a plate with beef slices on top.
