Made with fresh tangy lime and peppery chili paste, this restaurant favorite is easy to make at home.

1 1/2 lbs. flank steak
2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil, divided
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1 Tablespoon Asian fish sauce
1/4 tsp. chili paste or 1 tsp. minced serrano chile
1 tsp. sugar sub
1 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1/2 cup chopped scallions
1 pound green beans, trimmed
salt and freshly ground black pepper

Heat grill or grill pan to high.  Rub steak on both sides with 1 tsp. of the oil and season with salt and pepper.  Grill to desired doneness, about 4 minutes per side for medium rare.  Remove from heat and set on a cutting board for 5 minutes.

Whisk together lime juice, fish sauce, chili paste, sugar sub, cilantro, and scallions in a large mixing bowl.

Heat a saucepan of salted water to boiling.  Add beans and cook until crisp tender, about 4 minutes.  Drain.

Thinly slice beef across the grain.  Toss with lime juice mixture, adding any meat juices that have accumulated on cutting board.  Add beans, toss and serve.
