Where’s the full recipe - why can I only see the ingredients?

    Very delicious salad with lots of flavor. Only issue may be cut of beef. Needs to be more tender cut. This recipe was made with top sirloin.

    Susan made this as the first course for our socially distanced Rosh Hashana dinner. Really amazing. I will be making this for myself. Dave did not love the amount of dressing, but I thought it was perfect in every way. Really well balanced.

    Quite good and refreshing

    Made as directed minus the tomato and thought it was good but not stellar. I'm not sure the broth did much to flavour the beef and I found the dressing too heavy on the lime. Overall the other Flavours were good, but the dish was a little unbalanced.

    I opted to deconstruct the recipe a bit. I marinated the steak in some of the ingredients in the recipe, namely fish sauce, sesame oil, garlic, ginger, chiles, and Mr. NS cooked it in the big egg. I made the salad and dressing as directed, then just plated sliced steak alongside the salad. The dressing spread about the plate a bit, and flavored the steak even more. We both thought this was a killer dish done this way, just delicious. Lee gets complete credit for the salad and dressing, but I loved the marinated, grilled steak with it. With reduced servings, this would also be great for a small plate or an appetizer. It really packs a lot of flavor.
