This steak marinade was awesome- we used it instead of chicken in the Asian Chicken Salad (listed in salads). We have it marinating again today- we'll probably eat it over and over until we can't bear to see it again!!

I was really hoping to like this recipe, but as it is, I thought it was just ok, and not worth the trouble of getting my charcoal grill going. The flavor was pretty good, but something in the seasonings was a little off--too much coriander? Too much sake? I'm not sure. I made this according to the recipe except for substituting shallots for onions and crushed garlic for garlic salt. Oh, well--I might try it again, only on the stove, and I might reduce the marinade for a glaze. However, for all of you out there who love this recipe but are having a hard time finding lemongrass--one trip to an Asian grocery store and one good growing season, and you can have a pot full of lemongrass--the stalks will grow roots if they're fresh enough and placed in water for a few weeks. Just keep your cats away from them--mine go nuts for lemongrass.

Wow! We loved this dish. I couldn't find rice wine so I omitted it. I used 1/2 a Vidalla onion rather than red since it was what I had. I couldn't find fresh lemon grass so used a jar of dried. I also left out the garlic salt and added a clove of minced garlic. Nothing in the dish has an over powering flavor and we couldn't get enough of it at our house. I was concerned about the 3 tablespoons of chile paste, but the dish had an undertone of spiciness, but wasn't hot at all. In fact, I planned to give my 4 yo a hotdog, but she not only ate some but asked for seconds.

I made this for the first time for company. We had several thai style dishes and this was the least favorite. I thought it was fine, but no one else seemed to like it for some reason. They thought the spices didn't taste right. My husband said next time he would omit the rice wine and cut back on the soy sauce.

I made a few changes by adding fresh garlic instead of garlic salt (soysauce is salty enough).This recipe was a HUGE hit for some realy foodies that I served it to. I marinated Filet instead of Flank Steak to make the affair a little more upscale. I served cold noodles with peanut sauce, green salad with a cilantro lime dressing, and meyer lemon roasted asparagus. The meal was fantastic!
