Instructions Checklist
  • Trim fat from meat. Cut meat against the grain into 1/4-inch-thick slices. If using loin roast, cut slices to make 3x1-inch strips. Place meat in a resealable plastic bag set in a shallow dish. For marinade, in a small bowl combine fish sauce, lime juice, lemongrass, oil, and garlic. Pour marinade over meat. Seal bag; turn to coat meat. Marinate in the refrigerator for 2 hours, turning bag occasionally.
