Mum's Beef Nam Tok (Thai Beef Salad)
( SERVES 4 )
My Mum is THE BEST cook in the World and her food always comforts me. This recipe is one of my favorites and is something that is very simple but packs loads of flavour. Nam Tok originated in the North Eastern region of Thailand (Esan) but is very popular throughout the country. Whenever I have this dish it takes me back to my childhood back in Thailand. If you appreciate Thai food you'll love this dish!
