Nuea Nam Tok Thai Spicy Grilled Beef Salad

Hello Unregistered,

Nam Tok น้ำตก or spicy Thai salad originated in Isaan the North Eastern part of Thailand and is now popular all over the world, in taste and preparation it is quite similar to laab and Yam.
It traditionally was made using beef but can also be made with chicken or pork, for this recipe we used beef.
น้ำตก or nam tok in Thai means waterfall, this is in reference to the meat being BBQued and the fat dripping onto the hot coals.
