I had this dressing a long time ago, probably when I was 16 or so. I attended an event with my parents, you know, one of those things no teenager wants to go ever. Of course, I was bored and wanted nothing to do with the event, suddenly there were servers coming out with trays of finger food and drinks, that caught my attention. I first was offered a soda and then a couple servers walked around with “funny” looking food, like too little for my taste, I really didn’t know any better. I clearly remember one of the servers coming by and offered me beef satays, to me it looks like beef skewers, so I grabbed one and dipped it on a brown looking sauce. As soon as I tasted that beef and sauce I was hooked! All I wanted to do was eat a full tray of those things, which I probably did because I chased the server for the full hour and a half that we were there. After eating everybody’s beef skewers we went home and I asked my parents to bring me next time they have this event, since then I know I love anything that has peanuts and soy sauce, basically, all Southeast Asian food!!
After a few years I was able to recognize the flavors and learned how to make this dressing/sauce, I know it goes well with salads, skewers and grilled meats. So, I think it’s time for you to get all the ingredients ready and LET’S GET COOKING.
Here’s a THAI BEEF SALAD recipe for the dressing you just learned.
