rant: possibly dinner tonight?

feeling like i need to consume more veggies after this weekend of marathon eating/baking (more to come on that). so i think i'm going to make a salad for dinner. skipping the carbs is fine by me, but will i find b gnawing on my arm a couple hours after dinner? we shall see...
Yam Neua (Thai-Style Beef Salad)

Serves 2
8-10 oz. beef (I used rib-eye, which worked just fine)
1 small head of green leaf lettuce
1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced
1 Roma tomato, thinly sliced (optional)
1/2 cucumber, thinly sliced
salt and freshly ground pepper
1 1/2 tbsp fish sauce
2 tbsp freshly squeezed lime juice
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 small red chili, seeded and finely chopped
2 tbsp water
1. Season your meat with salt and pepper and sear it on the stove (or a grill) for 3-4 minutes on each side. Remove it from heat and let sit for 10 minutes before slicing it thinly (it should still be pretty pink in the middle).
2. While your meat is restin’, make the dressin’. Combine fish sauce, lime juice, brown sugar, chili, and 2 tbsp water in a small saucepan and stir over low heat until the sugar dissolves. Remove from heat and keep warm.
3. Toss all the veggies together, top with beef slices and warm dressing. Serve immediately.
