How to cook the perfect beef steak

In this recipe, we would suggest using a sirloin or a fillet cut. Remove your meat from the refrigerator 30 minutes before it starts cooking. It will enable the beef to brown evenly.

Sprinkle the spice on both sides of your meat. In the frying pan, heat it and add a small amount of oil. Let the pan get hot before adding the heart. The goal is to get the oil to be smoking lightly. Place the meat in the pan, allowing each side to cook for three minutes. After placing the heart into the pan, don’t move it. Let it remain in close contact with your pan.

This cooking time gives you the best cooking time for your steak for this recipe, which is moderate to rare. You can cook it for a few minutes longer for each side to make sure you like the steak medium.

After removing the pan, let it sit for a minimum of 10 minutes. This allows the meat to rest, making it more succulent. This also allows you time to prepare your salad ingredients!

Build the salad

When the dressing is prepared, and the beef has been rested, prepare all ingredients for the salad. Combine all the ingredients in an enormous bowl and add around five tablespoons of dressing, then mix to coat all salad ingredients.

What’s Thai as a salad?

Yam is the most common Thai word used to describe salad. It is any salad that has traditional fresh and bold Thai ingredients. It is served with a conventional balanced Thai dressing with spice, salt, and sweet and sour flavors.

We hope we’ve inspired you to try this delicious Thai steak salad recipe a shot. You can apply many great techniques and flavors to other dishes, too. If fresh, vibrant flavors are your thing, this dish is perfect.

Nam Jim Dressing

Grab your mortar and pestle (or miniature blender) to make the dressing and add the chili, garlic coriander stalks, chili, and chili powder. Then pound into a fine paste.

Mix the sugar in and then pound the mixture. Add the juice of a lemon and mix thoroughly.

Make use of the sauce for fish to season the taste.

Cooking Your Beef

Take the beef out of the fridge about 30 minutes before when you plan to prepare it.

The fry pan is heated, and add a bit of canola oil. Sprinkle both sides of your beef using salt and black pepper. Add the seasoned piece of beef when the pan’s oil is smoking. Let it cook on each side for three minutes. This will provide you with the perfect cooking time for your meat for this dish, which is rare-medium very rare.

Remove the pan from the oven and let it sit for 10 minutes. This allows the meat to soften, making it more tender and juicy.
