Submitted by: SUBPOPTART

Introduction

Northern Thai and Laos have a unique take on traditional Thai dishes. This is my favorite region and this is one of my favorite beef dishes from the region.

Ingredients

    1 pound flank steak - grilled rare, chopped fine
    1/3 cup of 99% fat free Chicken Broth
    2 small cucumbers, peeled and sliced into ovals
    2 small roma tomatoes, chopped
    1 bunch of fresh mint, washed and chopped
    3 green onions, thinly sliced
    1 bunch of cilantro chopped
    2 Tablespoons of roasted rice powder (recipe to follow)
    1 teaspoon of ground dried red chile
    1 teaspoon truvia
    1/4 cup fish sauce
    1/4 cup fresh squeezed lime juice


    Thinly slice beef crosswise into 2 inch long strips and set aside.

    Bring chicken broth to gentle boil in a small saucepan. Add sliced beef and turn occasionally, moistening and warming stak in stock, 1 to 2 minutes. Set aside.

    Add green onions, shallots, cilantro, roasted rice powder, chile, sugar, fish sauce and lime juice to pan. Toss well. At this point you should taste the dressing to determine what your taste buds feel it needs. You may need to add more of the following items depending on your taste: Fish Sauce, lime juice, truvia or chiles.

    Line a plate with lettuce leaves, cucumber and tomato slices. Transfer the beef to platter with slotted spoon. Drizzle sauce on top of meat.

    This can be served immediately or at room temperature. I like mine at room temp.

  • I am half Thai and this is almost the same way I make it. We use top sirloin and grill it, then slice it up paper thin. I leave out the rice powder. I just made some last night and was too lazy to create my own recipe on here. Yummy!! - 9/3/13
