Thai Curry Steak

Here’s a quick and easy way to add new and unique flavors to your favorite steaks. The sauce combines red curry paste with coconut milk and brown sugar. Grill your favorite cut — think strip steaks or tenderloin — and allow to rest. Spoon the Thai curry sauce on the plate, slice steak and “shingle” or fan out atop the sauce, then sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds, if desired.

Enjoy this quick and tasty sauce. It’s a great idea to ‘kick it up a notch’. Enjoy!
