My husband and I went to a Thai restaurant in Causeway Bay and I was inspired to prepare one this unforgettable dish: Thai beef salad. It is a spicy blend of beef, assorted herbs and often wrapped in lettuce. I love this dish so please forgive me for including Thai recipe in our Pinoy food recipe website.
