    TJW's Note:

    From the famous German chef, Tim Melzer. Beef sauteed with chiles, and served over a bed of romaine lettuce, topped with fresh basil, mint and coriander with a fresh lime vinaigrette drizzled all over it. YUM. You can throw this together in less than fifteen minutes! NOTE: This is spicy, if you don't like spicy, omit the chiles. Also, if you are averse to cilantro, just use basil, and mint.

    1. 1
      Mix lime juice, fish sauce, peanut oil, sugar, salt and pepper. Set aside.
    2. 2
      Add the constarch to the beef strips and toss.
    3. 3
      Add 3 TB oil to a heavy bottomed pan and heat to medium-high.
    4. 4
      When the oil is hot, but not smoking add the beef strips and stir constantly, about 5 minutes. Add a pinch of salt and sugar. The starch will stick to the pan, but that is ok.

      Add the chiles and cook two minutes more.
    6. 6
      Add the garlic and cook another minute, remove and set aside to cool to lukewarm.
    7. 7
      Slice the romaine lettuce in half lengthwise, and then each half into thin strips, and spread them out on a serving platter.
    8. 8
      Top with the beef, and add the fresh herbs on top.
    9. 9
      Drizzle dressing on it, break the orchid into three parts and add on top.
    10. 10

      Great salad. Didn't have the orchids and omitted the mint (not a fan). Super simple meal. Didn't like the long cuts of romaine as I found them difficult to eat. Will tear into more square shape next time. Also added some siricha sauce to the dressing and more peppers than called for.
