  • Dressing:
  • 1 tablespoon thinly sliced lemon grass
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons roasted rice powder, optional
  • 5 cloves very fresh garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced shallots
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh mint leaves

  • 2 to 3 Thai chiles, or serranos, thinly sliced with seeds
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 head romaine, inner leaves only

Directions

Prepare grill and cook beef strips 4 to 6 minutes for medium rare, or to desired doneness, turning once. (Or simply use leftover grilled steak, cut into thin strips.) Place in a large bowl and toss with cucumber slices.

In another bowl, combine dressing ingredients and mix well. Add to beef and cucumbers and toss to coat. Arrange romaine leaves on a serving platter and spoon beef salad on top. Sprinkle green onions over the salad and serve room temperature or cold.
