  1. Preheat grill for medium-high heat.
  2. Grill beef to desired doneness, and allow to cool.
  3. While beef is cooling, stir together fish sauce, lime juice, kecap manis, garlic, ginger, cilantro, sesame oil, and chili oil; mix in the green onions and shallots. Adjust seasoning to your taste.
  4. Cut beef into bite-sized pieces. In a large bowl, toss with onion, tomatoes, cucumber, and chili peppers. Pour in the dressing, and toss to coat.


  • Editor's Note:
  • Kecap manis is an intensely dark brown, syrupy-thick sauce similar to soy sauce, but with a sweeter, more complex flavor.

Wonderful salad that's very similar to what we typically have in Thai restaurants. I didn't have any cilantro and used parsley instead. It was still good but I think the cilantro would have ma...

This was SOOOO GOOD! I might cut back on the sesame oil a little next time, but just for my taste preference. I did add a little sugar to the dressing as I like my Asian food pretty sweet. I ...

Great salad. Followed recipe exactly and added toasted peanuts as a garnish. Lovely sweet and sour dressing with just enough of a spicy kick.
