Hot and sour beef with cucumber.

Yun nuah is the Thai name for this. 1 pound boned beef sirloin steak, cut 1-1/4 inches thick 1 medium-size cucumber, peeled 1/4 cup lime juice 1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion 2 tablespoons soy sauce or fish sauce 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil, optional 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon cayenne Butter lettuce leaves, washed and crisped 1 teaspoon sesame seed Mint or cilantro sprigs

Slash fat rim on steak at 2-inch intervals. Place steak in an 11- by 13-inch pan and broil 3 inches from heat until well browned on each side and still rare (cut to test), about 12 minutes.

Meanwhile, cut cucumber in half lengthwise; scoop out and discard seeds. Thinly slice cucumber crosswise. Slice cooked steak across the grain into thin strips. In a bowl, mix cucumber, steak, lime juice, onion, soy sauce, sesame oil, and cayenne to taste. Cover and chill mixture until cold, 1 to 6 hours. Arrange lettuce leaves on a platter. Pile beef mixture onto leaves; garnish with sesame seed and mint.

Serve as a salad, or roll beef mixture in leaves to eat. Serves 3 or 4.
