Nua yang nam tok (waterfall beef)

If you've got a broiler/grill you can cook this one anytime, otherwise wait for the barbeque season.

 In Thai nua is beef, yang means broiled (over a charcoal burner), and nam tok is a waterfall. The name comes from the sound the juices dripping from the beef onto the open charcoal brazier make.


You need a 1 pound steak, cut fairly thick.marinade

1 tablespoon fish sauce 
1 tablespoon tamarind juice 
1 tablespoon lime juice 
1 tablespoon chopped red birdseye chilis (prik ki nu) 

Mix the marinade, coat the steak with it and marinade it for at least 3 

The steak is then barbequed, broiled or grilled until on the rare side 
of medium rare, cut into half inch thick strips and the strips cut into 
bite sized pieces. The meat can be kept cool until just before you want 
to eat.remaining ingredients

third cup fish sauce 
third cup lime juice 
2-3 tablespoons chopped shallots 
2-3 tablespoons chopped coriander/cilantro (including the roots if poss) 
2-3 tablespoons chopped mint leaves 
2 tablespoons khao noor (see the pad thai recipe for this) 
1 tablespoon freshly roasted/fried sesame seeds 
1-3 teaspoons freshly ground dried red chilis.method

In a wok, bring a little oil to medium high heat, and add the strips of 
beef, immediately followed by all the remaining ingredients, stir fry 
until heated through (about a minute). 

Serve with Thai sticky rice. (Alternatively I rather like it as part of 
a meal with pad thai and a soup such as tom yum ghoong (hot and sour 
shrimp soup)).
