Beef Lok Lak

MckLinky Blog Hop: Favorite Recipe

Lunch on Friday was Beef Lok Lak. I prefer to cook it myself, but this was tasty enough.

Making it is very simple. All you need is some beef that you slice into bite-sized pieces, steamed rice, freshly sliced cucumber, tomato and onion with some lettuce leaves, and finally a sauce made of freshly ground pepper, salt and lime juice squeezed over at the last minute.

Prepare a large platter layering the vegetables starting with lettuce leaves on the bottom, then followed by cucumbers, onions and tomatoes.

Heat a skillet over medium heat. Add some oil and minced garlic. Cook until slightly golden. Add the beef, stirring quickly to cook it, but not too long.

When the beef is mostly cooked, add a Tablespoon or two of sugar and soy sauce. Allow that to bubble up into a sauce. Turn off heat. Pour beef with sauce directly over the vegetables.

Squeeze the lime juice into the salt and pepper. Mix up. Serve with rice.

Eat Lok Lak by taking a piece of beef, vegetable, rice and add a little of the salt and pepper sauce onto a spoon.
