    Thai Beef Salad Wraps

    Yum

    This is inspired by the traditional Thai beef salad, but made slightly easier as I omitted the roasted rice powder. But what lacks in the crunch from the roasted rice, was substituted by the crunch from the cucumber ribbons. The only reason I omitted the roasted rice was because I do not have a mortar and pestle, and using my food processor to process that little bit of roasted rice is not going to be efficient/effective. 

    I do like the extra freshness this version of Thai beef salad gives though. Crisp romaine lettuce, juicy tomatoes, freshness of the mint leaves, plus a bit of bite from the red onions goes so well together. Wrapping everything up makes it easier to eat as well. The dressing has a good balance of sweet, sour, savoury, and spiciness. I used flank steak because I prefer leaner cut of meat. But feel free to substitute to a cut of your preference.
