We love a good Thai beef salad. This one is spicy and refreshing at the same time.


  • For marinade & dressing:

  • 4 Tbsp. lime juice
  • 4 Tbsp. fish sauce
  • 4 Tbsp. rice wine vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp. soy sauce
  • 2 Tbsp. canola oil
  • 2 Tbsp. water
  • 2 Tbsp. Red Thai Curry
  • 1 Tbsp. light brown sugar
  • 2 tsp. Dehydrated Minced Garlic
  • For beef & salad:

  • 1 1/2 lbs. flank steak
  • 2 Tbsp. Red Thai Curry
  • 4 oz. thin rice noodles, cooked
  • 4 cups mixed greens
  • 1 cup bean sprouts
  • 4 to 6 radishes, sliced
  • 1 jalapeƱo, sliced
  • 1/2 cup cilantro or mint leaves
  • 1/4 cup peanuts, chopped
  • 1 Tbsp. Black Sesame Seeds


Recipe also works with Thai Green Curry in place of Red Thai Curry.


For marinade & dressing: Whisk all ingredients together. Pour half of the mixture into a gallon-sized zip top storage bag for marinade, and cover and refrigerate the other half to use later as the dressing.

For beef & salad: Place steak in bag with marinade, seal and refrigerate for 4 hours or up to overnight. Remove steak from marinade and preheat grill to medium-high. Rub Red Thai Curry onto both sides of steak then grill for about 5 min. per side for medium doneness. Transfer to a cutting board, tent with foil and let rest for 15 min. Slice steak against the grain into 1/4-inch thick pieces and toss with half of the reserved dressing. Prepare salad plates with a scoop of cooked noodles and a handful of greens then add a pile of sliced beef. Top with remaining garnishes to taste and serve with remaining dressing on the side.

This dish was amazing. I actually cooked the steak on a salt block and it came out great!! I had made for a bunch of people and everyone loved it. I also tried mixing the reserve for the dressing and yogurt to make a creamy dressing and it was really good also. Will be making this again!

Prepared many times. Everyone loves it. The marinated flank steak also makes excellent sandwiches (slice thin, serve on French baguette with green onions, cilantro, pickled Daikon radishes and real mayo). Absolutely delicious.
Test Kitchen Response: Thanks for the review, Nina! We love your sandwich idea.
