Green mango salad is a common feature among the various Southeast Asian cuisines. We took a few liberties with this variation, which is rolled in a romaine lettuce leaf (no utensils required!) and topped with strips of grilled beef. Very fresh.

Ingredients

Beef

Toppings

Preparation

Beef

  1. In a glass dish, combine the beef with the remaining ingredients. Mix to coat well. Let marinate for 10 minutes.
  2. Preheat the grill, setting the burners to high. Oil the grate.
  3. Grill the meat for 2 minutes on each side or until pink. Season lightly with salt. Let the meat rest on a plate for 10 minutes. On a work surface, thinly slice the meat.

Toppings

  1. Meanwhile, in a bowl, mix together the carrots, green mango, shallot, cilantro and Vietnamese sauce.
  2. Divide the mixture among the romaine leaves. Top with the beef and ripe mango.
