An authentic Thai recipe. It was given to me by a family friend who was born in Thailand, but raised in the US when her parents immigrated.

  • Cook steak on preheated grill until desired doneness is reached, 5 to 6 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 140 degrees F (60 degrees C).

  • Whisk lime juice, soy sauce, brown sugar, fish sauce, garlic, and chile-garlic sauce together in a bowl.

  • Mix romaine lettuce, mint, cilantro, and basil together in a bowl; spoon about 6 tablespoons lime juice mixture over romaine mixture. Toss to coat.

  • Cut steak into strips and place strips into remaining lime juice mixture; let sit for steak to marinate, 1 to 2 minutes. Place steak on romaine mixture.

This was delicious! I made a couple of changes this time. Our local Thai place uses ground beef so I used that. I put 6 tablespoons of the sauce in the ground beef after is was cooked and cooled a little. Lime juice gets bitter if you heat it too much. For the sauce the only change I made was I added and extra teaspoon of Sriracha per recipe. I doubled the entire sauce recipe because we like extra. I added thinly sliced red onion and cucumbers to the salad. Tasted just like the restaurant dish! Read More

No changes but I'm sorry to say the flavor wasn't nearly as tasty as I was hoping. Read More

the recipe is great! The basil was a bit overpowering next time I'll add a 1/4 cup. The dressing was pretty salty I'll add 2x the sugar to balance it. Overall it was a great base! We loved it! Definitely spicy and we love it! It's a very refreshing summer salad for spice lovers! Read More

very good and easy. I added some red onion cucumbers and had rice noodles on the side for anyone who wanted to add these. It would have been good without the additions but I just wanted to add a few more flavors. Read More
