This traditional Vietnamese sauce also doubles for a super flavorful marinade as well as a salad dressing. This time around I marinated the steak for an hour. The brown sugar makes for some awesome caramelization. I then served it with a small bowl of the sauce on the side along with some raw cucumber and radish. Yum!



No cooking required, just stir together 1/2 cup of fish sauce, the juice from three limes and the zest from one, 2 tablespoon of brown sugar, two minced garlic cloves and a seeded minced jalapeno.
