Thai beef salad with shallots, lemongrass, mint, cilantro and roasted rice powder. Another version with pork is also charming.
My preferred brand, as always, B&B Charcoal.
Fish sauce, honey, lime juice and zest, lemongrass, shallot and toasted chili powder. H Mart is the heavyweight champion of Asian grocery stores. We are lucky here in Austin to have a location. If you are ever in need of fresh curry leaves or cilantro roots, check them out.
In my opinion, nothing compares to grilling over coals. I know twisting the handle on your grill is a whole lot easier, but come on. If you were looking at a menu and you could order either a fire roasted steak or a propane heated steak, which one would you pick.
