THAI BEEF SALAD

My sister has been bugging me to make some Thai grilled beef salad so here’s my rendition of it.

* serves 4

Dressing/Marinade:
3 tablespoons fish sauce
1 lime, juiced
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon lemongrass, thinly sliced {tender white part}
2 shallots, thinly sliced
1 each bird’s eye chili, minced

1 lb. New York steak or whatever kind of meat you’d like such as beef tenderloin

1 each English cucumber, thinly sliced
1 each tomato, cut into wedges
1/4 bunch cilantro, chopped
2 stalks scallions, chopped
1/2 head of romaine lettuce, cut into bite sized pieces

Directions:
1. Whisk the dressing ingredients together. Set aside.
2. Marinate the beef in 1 tablespoon of the dressing for 15 minutes.
3. Lightly oil a grill pan and let the pan get smoking hot. Grill the beef on the pan until desired doneness. Let rest and then thinly slice across the grain.
4. In a big bowl, add the English cucumber, tomato, cilantro, scallions, romaine lettuce, and beef. Toss the mixture with the dressing. Place on a plate and eat as is or serve with some jasmine rice.
