leftover steak? Nam Tok beef!

I had in my possession about 10 ozs. of leftover, perfectly-grilled flank steak. I wanted to do something with it other than just eat it straight. I decided to try an replicate my favorite Thai restaurant dish, Nam Tok beef. Spicy, sweet, sour, savory... Nam Tok beef has so many flavors yet they all work together to make... a party in your mouth :)

Leftover Steak Nam Tok Beef

-1 garlic clove, minced
-1 large shallot, chopped fine
-1 green chile, chopped fine
-juice of 2 limes
-2 Tablespoons white vinegar
-1/2 Tablespoon Fish Sauce
-3 Tablespoons Soy Sauce
-1 Tablepoon sugar
-1 Tablespoon honey
-small handful of cilantro, chopped
-10 oz. medium-rare grilled flank steak, sliced into thin strips

Combine first 9 ingredients, add the beef strips. Let the beef marinate in the fridge while you cook rice and shred cabbage. Serve Beef and marinade cold over rice with shredded raw cabbage. Makes 2 servings.

Looks better than good - looks like it's going to be dinner on Wednesday night. I love finding recipes where I already have all of the ingredients in my pantry (or fridge).
