Yum Neua (Thai Beef Salad)

Posted by: Site Administrator  :  Category: Entrees, salad

This is one of my favorite Thai summer dishes. It’s refreshing, filling, and delicious.

Take thinly sliced strips of beef and marinate in sea salt and lime juice for about an hour. Saute until cooked medium (this won’t take more than a minute or two), and then marinate in the fridge in the following dressing until chilled


Equal parts (roughly 1 tablespoon per serving) of:

  • Lime juice
  • Palm Sugar (I shred mine from a cake with a cheese grater)
  • Nam Pla (fish sauce)
  • Soy Sauce

Shake well and add:

  • crushed garlic (about 1 clove per 2 servings)
  • a chopped green onion
  • a few sprigs of mint, chopped
  • a few sprigs of cilantro, chopped

Shake again and marinate the meat.

Serve (with dressing) over top of your favorite salad ingredients, with crumbled feta and drizzled with some sweet chili sauce.
