When people are thinking about Thai food, many of them will call names like green curry, red curry, and so on. I do agree those mouth-watering foods will fulfill our craving for carbs. And those comforting foods are the true happiness of my weekly cheat days. However, the days that I am on a diet, I would still get yummy Thai beef salad (Nam Tok) that it piles with good protein and flavors without grieving my taste buds.

Thai beef salad (Nam Tok) is so easy to make that the essence of the recipe is to find a better steak to meet your diet needs (New York strip is my favorite). You will get your steak and grill it on the pan or the griller and toss with the dressing (herbs and seasonings). And it is done. It requires very little of techniques to grill the steak, the excellent “dressing” itself will make up all the imperfection from the grilling part. The superb balance of sourness, spiciness, and saltiness from the dressing mix is the key point of this mouth-watering protein-rich salad bowl.

At Simply Tasty Thai restaurant, we serve the traditional Thai beef salad. And we guarantee our Thai beef salad is the best in town. We also give it a name as tiger cries too! We truly invite you to come to our store to try this dish.
