this spicy dish is great with beer as an appetizer. You can also serve it with rice as main course, as most Thai families would. As you may know, there’s no (official) 3 (or 5, or SEVEN!) course meal in Thailand. (I’ll explain soon in an “eating culture” section.) Any question please ask.
Grill or broil the steak to your liking (ours is medium-rare). Trim off any fat. Cool and slice thin, into pieces approx. 2 inches across and 1/8 inch thick.
Mix garlic, chiles, fish sauce, lime juice, and sugar in a small bowl. Add the sliced meat and toss with the cucumbers and shallots. Taste and add more fish sauce if desired.
Make a bed of the lettuce on a serving plate. Place the beef on top. Garnish with cilantro and mint. Serves 2 to 3 as an appetizer or as part of a meal.
Serve with fresh cabbage slices.
