Bob's Thai Beef Salad Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 2)
Reviewed: May 2, 2006
Most authentic recipe I have come across (my mom is from thailand and makes the best beef salad or in thai "yum nua") but I agree, too much fish sauce. She uses 2 limes and about 4-5 tbsp of fish sauce. No sugar and use yellow onions. Don't mix the cucumbers in, serve them on the side. We usually eat this with sticky jasmine rice and our hands. Also, if you can manage roasted (raw) sticky rice that has been ground in a coffee grinder adds wonderful nutty flavor and texture (but beware, it will make you cough and sputter when you make it). It helps to slice the beef as thinly as possible. But over all, not bad but can be made better!

Be careful how much fish sauce you use!!! Using a whole cup is way too much. I'll also say that I like fish but apparently fish sauce is not a good flavor for me. Personally, I thought it smelled like low tide. I won't be making this again.

Way too watery. 4Tbsp fish sauce and 4 Tbsp lime is just the right amount. I'm lo carb so I substituted sugar for 2 packets of Splenda. Also, I served mine over butter lettuce and added thinly sliced red bell pepper. Yum!!

I love Thai salad. but I always serve lettuce with the cucumber and white onion any,I also put fresh cilantro over it, other veggies if you like tomatoe, bell pepper with your hot meat and dressing over it along with hot white rice. I use half lime and half fish sauce with how many peppers you want. Drizzle a litte dressing over rice. Serve the salad over the rice. Its good

1cup of fish sauce and the amount asked for the limb juice is way off for me. Like said... it was more like a soup but I tried it the second time with 4 tablespoons of fish sauce and 4 tablespoons of lime juice and a tablespoon of sugar was perfect and 5 stars. It was a big hit at my dinner party. 1 cup of fish sauce is waaaayyy to salty :)

I found this salad way too salty. Also, with so much lime juice and a full cup of fish sauce, the salad was more like a soup! I might try to make this again with the same ingredients, but I will definitely alter the proportions.
