MMM, I always order Yum Nua when we go for Thai.

Looks great. I'd probably cut out the mint and fish sauce, as I made a flop of a salad a while back with those two ingredients.

I'd substitute the steak for another meat, but it looks delicious.

I am definitely bookmarking this one. My guy loves steak and anything thai, but won't go near salad. I must win him over!
