I love Thai food, all of it, and after a recent trip to Thailand I wanted to share with you one of my favorite Thai dishes.
If you haven't tried a Thai Beef Salad you are in for a taste sensation. There are lots of variations out there of the same dish but this is how I like to serve it. It works for me.
There is a combination of zesty lime, firey hot chilli and fragrant cilantro that light up your taste buds leaving your mouth watering and in search of more.
It's all about simple fresh ingredients that stand alone and speak for themselves.
Everything can be prepared ahead of time so all you have to do is cook the steak, have a glass of wine while waiting for the meat to rest, put the whole thing together and devour...with another glass of wine!
The recipe is for 4 people which should allow a fair sized portion, add more salad ingredients if necessary.
Be careful changing the dressing quantities as they are well balanced but you can add more chilli if heat is your thing.
For the beef, I used what I had which was ribeye steak but any good cut will work. Just remember that it doesn't need to be cooked too much so choose accordingly.
