Sesame Beef Skewers With Thai Salad


For the dressing:

  • 2 tbsp fish sauce
  • 2 tbsp calamansi juice
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds
  1. Soak 8 bamboo skewers in water for 15 minutes. In a bowl, combine cucumber, tomatoes, bean sprouts, bell peppers, cilantro and basil. Set aside.
  2. Place the beef slices in a bowl with the sesame oil together with salt and pepper. Stir well to coat. Thread the beef onto soaked skewers.
  3. Preheat a grill pan on medium high heat. Grill beef skewers for 2-3 minutes each side until charred and cooked through.
