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 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.
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.
Super flavor. Followed recipe exactly. Marinade are just so much fun. Will make again.
Good flavor. We will be having this again.
Wow! The taste is absolutely phenomenal! I served with an old fashioned texas spicy cream of carrot soup and a light salad, and it was a major hit!
OK ....... a bunch of ingredients you seldom see together, but it seemed interesting. I followed the recipe EXACTLY. I grow my own lemongrass, basil, mint, and a bunch of other stuff so it wasn't difficult to prepare. The biggest issue I had was the lack of cooking detail. 20 minutes on medium-high (on my grill) got RARE. I then sliced it all and returned it to the grill grates to finish cooking for another 5 minutes. I may try the recipe again -- but just for the marinade / sauce. I'll stick to other proven flank recipes.
Great as a marinade for just about any type of meat.
