Juice of 2 lemons 

¼ cup brown sugar

1 small bunch of cilantro 

1-2 Tbsp fish sauce (substitute soy sauce)

4 cloves garlic

1 jalapeno, partially seeded

1 - 2 Tbsp water

Combine in a blender or food processor.

Salad (may vary ingredients by taste and availability)

Romaine lettuce

Red cabbage

Red onion


Fresh Herbs (tarragon, basil, mint, and/or cilantro)

Red pepper




Light grill or broiler and cook flank steak 4 -7 minutes per side or until desired doneness.

While steak rests after grilling, combine dressing ingredients in the blender and cut vegetables for the salad – both can also be done ahead of time for ease of preparation.

Arrange salad ingredients on a large platter and slice steak into thin slices across the grain.

Serve with dressing on the side.
