Recently, I tried Ellie Krieger's Grilled Thai Beef Salad recipe.
This recipe takes some pre-planning because the meat needs to be marinated.
I used nampla (fish sauce) instead of shoyu (soy sauce) and sweet chili sauce instead of garlic chili sauce because these are the ingredients I had.
I didn't have the amount of lime juice, but I think if I did, the flavors would have been brighter.
Also, I didn't have cilantro and used up some Italian parsley. I know the flavors are different, but I really needed to use the parsley up.
I browned some yellow onions and added some sliced carrots and cucumber to the salad.
I thought the flavors would be overpowering but they were quite subtle. With a glass of merlot, it was a great dinner.
UPDATE: adding the lime zest to the sauce is also delicious.
