AT A GLANCE
Jaew is a spicy-sweet Thai dipping sauce made with roasted chilli flakes. It works well as a dressing here for the papaya as well as an accompaniment to the steak.
|01||Heat a char-grill pan over high heat and drizzle steaks with oil. Grill steaks, turning once, until browned and cooked to your liking (2-3 minutes each side for medium rare). Transfer to a plate to rest for 5 minutes.|
|02||Meanwhile, for jaew, combine ingredients in a bowl and set aside.|
|03||Pound papaya and shallot with a mortar and pestle to soften slightly, adding a spoonful of jaew sauce as you go. Transfer to a bowl, toss in herbs and serve alongside sliced steaks with extra jaew and lime wedges.|
Note Ground roasted rice is available from Asian grocers.
