Thai Beef Salad – Yum Seen

Thai Beef Salad - Yum Seen
Thai Beef Salad (Yum Neua Nam Tok) made with grilled steak, lime fish sauce dressing and simple herbs. It’s tangy, spicy and delicious. The fish sauce gives a nutty, salty, umami characteristic to the dish. Serve on top of lettuce or salad mix. Good as an appetizer or main course with rice. Feel free to customize the taste to your liking. You can also add lemon grass and roasted rice powder for more authentic taste.
