There is a restaurant in Luxembourg that serves authentic thai food. Even my father, who travelled Asia extensively, said that the quality of their food was excellent. I had a thai steak there and I can still recall its taste in my mouth – delicious! Thai food must be one of my favorite cuisines: so fresh but yet still so satisfying!
I tried to cook this steak at home many times, and I after trying out many recipes, I have finally found one that I like! Although it doesn’t really compare to the one at that restaurant 🙂 Just mix all the ingredients to a marinade and add it to a sealable plastic bag (Tip: I use these, because I find it easier to get the marinade where it needs to be. A porcelain or glass dish will also do the trick). Add the meat and mix well. Let everything marinate over night or at least for a few hours. Fry on high heat a few minutes on both sides and then let the meat relax at 90°C for 30 Min in the oven. If you want too, add a dash of lime juice or some butter before serving. Et voilà:)
