Neua Nam Tok Grilled Beef Salad
200g (7 oz) beef sirloin,marinated in a little fish sauce for a few hours.
4 red shallots finely sliced lengthways
1 tablespoon fresh mint leaves
1 tablespoon fresh coriander (Cilantro) leaves
1 table spoon Chinese shallot, sliced
1/2-2 teaspoons roasted chili powder
2 tablespoon ground roasted sticky rice (see below method)
30ml (2 tablespoons) lime juice
15ml (1 tablespoon) fish sauce (Nam Pla)
Grill or broil the beef to Medium rare, about 3-5 minutes.
Allow to rest for at least 5 minutes before slicing thinly.
Combine the beef with the remaining ingredients, using 1 tablespoon of sticky rice.
Check that the flavor is hot, sour and salty, and add more chilies, lime juice and/or fisk sauce (Nam Pla)as necessary.
Serve sprinkled with the remaining 1 tablespoon of sticky rice.
To roast rice:
Place the required amount in a pan stirring regularly to prevent scorching.
When light golden and fragrant remove from the heat.
Cool and grind quite finely. This is a bit of a work up so we make enough for three or four uses at a time and keep it in an airtight jar in the fridge.
