Thai Grilled-Beef Salad
Why This Recipe Works
Flank steak proved to be the best cut of meat for our Thai Grilled-Beef Salad recipe. We grilled the steak over a modified two-level fire, a high-heat grilling method that charred the beef but kept the inside medium-rare. For our Thai Grilled-Beef Salad’s dressing, we used a base of fish sauce, lime juice, sugar, and water, and then added a Thai chile and a mix of toasted cayenne and paprika, which added earthy, fruity red pepper flavor. We also made our own toasted rice powder, a traditional ingredient in Thai Grilled-Beef Salad recipes.
