4 servings (serving size: 1/2 cup noodles and 1 cup steak mixture)

Make this beef dish for a flavorful Thai dish that will become a fast favorite. Use kitchen shears or a knife and fork to chop the rice noodles into smaller pieces, which will make them easier to toss with the curry-lime juice dressing.

How to Make It

Step 1

Heat a large grill pan over medium-high heat.

Step 2

While pan heats, bring water to a boil in a large saucepan.

Step 3

Add steak to grill pan; grill 5 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Sprinkle steak with salt. Cut steak across grain into thin slices.

Step 4

While steak cooks, add asparagus to boiling water; cook 2 minutes. Remove asparagus with a slotted spoon. Add noodles to boiling water; cook 3 minutes or until done. Drain; rinse well. Cut noodles into smaller pieces; place in a medium bowl.

Step 5

While noodles cook, combine sugar, lime juice, fish sauce, and curry paste in a large bowl. Add one-half of lime mixture to medium bowl with noodles; toss to coat. Add steak, asparagus, tomatoes, and basil to remaining lime mixture in large bowl; toss to combine. Serve steak mixture over noodles.

This one will be made again and again. The flavors are great- especially for the warmer months- and I can hardly believe it was so light on calories. Next time I will make a bit more of the sauce and be more exact when it comes to chopping up the rice noodles. I can't wait to eat the leftovers cold for lunch tomorrow!

Really liked this recipe. I couldn't find red curry paste in the grocery store so I had to use yellow curry powder (which still tasted good). Next time I may use regular rice instead of the rice noodles.

Really tasty! 1.5 cups of asparagus did not equal a pound so I put in what seemed right. 4 oz. of noodles seemed like not enough in proportion to the rest of the recipe - will make more next time. Also would double the sauce to give it more flavor. Other than the "amounts," it was fabulous and I would definitely make again.

My family and I really enjoyed this. I made a few changes based on others reviews: I doubled the sauce except left the lime juice at three tbsp. and increased the curry paste to 1 tbsp. since we like the flavor. I also did not chop the noodles and cooked the flank steak on the BBQ. This is definitely something I would make again.
