In the mood for something spicy and exotic? Have an extra prime rib steak lying around in need of using up? This was the situation I was in last week, so I hopped over to my local Asian grocery store, picked up a few simple ingredients, and voila! Prime rib thai green curry! For a dinner party, just double up on all the ingredients.
This recipe will make the whole house smell amazing, and will be a crowd pleaser for sure. Buckle up, and enjoy!
I cubed my beef, but next time I’d like to try it sliced as thinly as possible. If you try it sliced, be sure to leave a comment and let me know how it turned out! If you don’t have prime rib, no worries, you can use flank steak as well, but if that’s the case you should marinate it in soy sauce for a couple hours first to keep it tender.
If you have any steak left over, as I did, save it and add it to a hearty salad next day.
