    This is a great summer recipe. With the heat we have been trying to fine recipes we don't need to heat the kitchen up with. I grilled the meat for 1.5 to 2 minutes each side. It was perfect! I added thin sliced orange pepper added nice color and good taste. My daughters only comment was needed more spice. Any ideas would be appreciated.

    One of the best "at home" Thai recipes! Usually I struggle to get an authentic Thai flavor when I cook at home, but this recipe really delivered!!! I, of course, didn't read the recipe well enough before I began so had to make a few modifications (which made it fantastic, so I think they are necessary). Ingredient Changes: ~2 tbsp dried ground ginger (in lieuf of fresh), used more garlic (1 elephant clove), used only 1 cup radish. Method Changes: Placed first 7 ingredients all in zip top bag and let marinate 20 minutes at room temp, then dumped the whole thing into a hot wok with 1 tbsp of light seasame oil and the minced serrano (with seeds). I let the sirloin cook for 10 minutes and then stirred in the remaining ingredients to heat through about another 3 minutes. Finally, I cooked some barley in water, drained well and stirred into the wok. I placed 3-4 leaves of living Bibb lettuce on each plate and topped with the thai beef. Wow - it was excellent; 100% a keeper - Enjoy!
