We used venison steak, which worked well. Don't be afraid of the fish sauce - the flavor is subtle in the final dish.
So good, should have gotten a bigger piece of meat because my kids loved it so much there wasn't enough left for hubby when he got home. Going into our regular rotation for sure!
This was a surprisingly great recipe. I use fish sauce all the time in Thai recipes but this was the first time I used it as the only I gradient in a marinade/sauce. It was so delicious. My kids couldn't get enough of the veggies and steak. I had the butcher halve the steak for me to save me time - one of my best ideas of the day! Make this recipe!
While cooking this, my 4yr old was literally crying because she thought it smelled like feet - fish sauce smells so nasty. But the end result was flavorful and delicious, with no hint of fish taste or smell. Beware: grating the onions also had ME crying. But other than that, it was simple to prepare.
