Thai Waterfall


This is a delicious Thai dish that isn't too risky if you're a cautious overseas eater. It has a tasty cilantro taste to it. I loved it! (authentic dish)


You need 1 lb steak, cut fairly thick.


Marinade

1 tbsp fish sauce, 1/3 cup lime juice, 2-3 tbsp chopped shallots, 2-3 tbsp chopped cilantro, 2-3 tbsp chopped mint leaves, 2 tbsp khao koor(see below), 1 tbsp freshly roasted sesame seeds, 1-3 tsp freshly ground dried red chilis.


Khao Koor: get a medium sized wok fairly hot, and add a couple of tablespoons of uncooked jasmine rice. Keep in movement until the rice starts to turn golden brown. Remove from the heat and allow to cool. Grind to fairly coarse powder in a spice mill, or coffee grinder. (Also can purchase ready-made Khao Koor)


Method


In a wok bring a little oil to medium high heat and add the strips of beef, immediatedly followed by all the remaining ingredients. Stir fry until heated through. (about a minute)


Serve with Thai sticky rice or Pad Thai.
