THAI BEEF (Steak with lime and cilantro)

MARINADE
- 2 freshly squeezed limes
- 2 Tbsp fresh chopped cilantro
- a handful (1/4 cup or so) of thinly sliced small red pepper varietal (New Mexico or Rocotillo peppers work great; even those little red sweet peppers found on the olive bar work well).
- couple shakes of salt & pepper

- I also like to add 1 tsp. of Argyle St. Asian blend spice, but if you don't have that handy, a good pinch of ginger powder will do.

STEAK

- I generally make this with 1-1/2 lbs. of steak. Any variety will take this recipe well (I usually get strip steak or sirloin when it's on sale), but it's also a super recipe for less expensive cuts of meat.

Slice steak into thin strips (about 1/2-3/4" wide; no more than 4" long). Place them in the marinade and allow to sit for at least an hour.

COOKING

Stir fry using olive oil or sesame oil (not butter!). Use marinade while cooking (be careful, though, to avoid splatters).

Serves well in a variety of ways, whether tossed with pasta, on its own with bread (or on bread as a sandwich), cold over salads, hot over rice, or made into a wrap or burrito.

Complimented nicely with a mild cheese such as mozzarella, or with a touch of sour cream.
