Whip up this Thai inspired sauce to go with your perfectly cooked steak. The characteristic Palm sugar gives a caramel kick to the balance of the savory-sour-sweet taste. Molasses, brown sugar or maple syrup are the good substitute if palm sugar is hard to come by.
- 300g – 400g beef steak (1-inch thickness/a piece, 2 pieces)
- Salt and Pepper
Thai Inspired sauce
- 1 tablespoon cooking oil
- 100g French Beans or Yalong Beans, minced
- A half of the Red Bell Pepper, minced
- 2 tablespoons light soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons Lime juice
- 1 tablespoon palm sugar or brown sugar
- ½ tablespoon corn starch (optional, it helps thicken the sauce)
- Season the steak with salt and pepper. Heat a frying pan. Grill the steak over low heat. Grill one side for 6 minutes. Flip over and grill the other side for another 5 minutes.
- In the meantime, let’s make the sauce. Heat the oil in another frying pan, fry ¾ of the minced beans and pepper for 2 minutes over low heat. Add light soy sauce, lime juice and palm sugar. Stir and cook for 1 minute. Pour the sauce into a bowl.
- Remove the steak from the frying pan. Let it sit on a cutting board for 5 minutes. Then slice it into small pieces of bite size.
- Plate the sliced steak. Add ¼ of the raw minced beans and red peppers. Then pour sauce atop of the plate. Enjoy!
