Yum Num Tok--Thai Beef Salad
----------------------------
I ate out at a Thai restaurant the other day, and tried their version of.
Here's my best guess at what was in it:

Sirloin steak, grilled and sliced about 1/4" thick
Chopped red onions (you can saute these if you don't like raw onions)
Cilantro, chopped
Scallions, chopped
Hot oil
2 or so dried hot peppers, crushed
2 T. lime juice

Grill the steak. Let cool; slice.
Chop onions and saute if desired. Let cool. Add to steak.
Chop cilantro, scallions.
Crush hot peppers; add to hot oil.  Add lime juice.
Mix everything together and serve over a bed of lettuce.
The Thai style beef and onion salad I had at another restaurant had crushed
nuts (probably peanuts) sprinkled on top, but I think slivered almonds,
lightly toasted, would be just as good.
