1.5 lb Hanger or Skirt Steak

salt, to taste

cracked white pepper, to taste

2-4 (depending on spice preference) fresh hot Thai Chili Peppers (or jalapeños), minced very thin

1 garlic clove, chopped and minced fine

4 tbsp Thai fish sauce

4 tbsp fresh squeezed lime juice

1 tbsp toasted sticky rice powder (optional)

1 Tbsp palm or brown sugar

1 heart of Romaine lettuce, chopped

1 English cucumber without seeds, sliced thin on a bias cut

1 handful fresh mint leaves, roughly chopped

6 cherry tomatoes, halved

1 small red onion, sliced very thin

2 green onions cut into 1/4" pieces

2 sprigs cilantro without stems, roughly chopped


When ready to cook, set temperature to High and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.

Season both sides of steak with salt and cracked white peppper. Brush the grill with canola oil to prevent steaks from sticking.

Grill hanger steak until it reaches an internal temperature of 130℉ for medium rare, about 5-10 minutes. Allow meat to rest then slice thin. 

For the Dressing: Mix together the garlic, chili peppers, fish sauce, lime juice and sugar in a small bowl. Add the toasted rice powder last. Note: If toasted rice powder is not accessible, use uncooked rice and dry roast in a pan over low heat until golden brown and grind into a powder with a mortar and pestle or food processor to add a nutty texture. 

Add the sliced hanger steak to the dressing and toss well.

In another bowl, add all the herbs with the chopped romaine cucumbers and tomatoes and toss everything together with the dressing and the hanger steak.

Add additional fish sauce, lime juice, sugar, toasted rice powder and chili peppers based on your taste preference. 

Garnish with cilantro and mint. Enjoy!
