Looks like I am in a fine vein of form when it comes to ingredients of late, this Thai inspired beef salad joins a recent mackerel recipe and a glorious salmon salad too… I am sure where most of you are from those ingredients will not be all that difficult to get your hands on or indeed expensive. But in these parts they are all really rather costly and very rare to find, all I need now is some lamb and I will be deliriously happy. To be honest I’m not sure my bank balance will cope with more food extravagance and will bee definitely cooking from the garden and with more frugal ingredients for the next couple of weeks.
I’ve discussed preferences on the cooking of meat here before, as you can tell from these images I kinda like my beef somewhere between rare and medium rare, but let no one tell you your preference is wrong… Food is meant to be enjoyed by you so if you like your beef in this beef salad a step away from charcoal then fill yer boots, I’ll not judge you although lordie knows so many folk on line will. Much the same goes for chili, this dish is as fiery as a fiery thing if you use Thai birds eye chili, particularly in the dressing, they kinda rank roughly 10 times hotter that Jalapeno peppers so be mindful of your own tolerance levels for chili. I guess what I am saying is we all like different stuff, this spicy Thai beef salad is a simple dish at heart with a fiery dressing, it is important when cooking things so simple to make sure you get it right for you as there really is no where to hide.
