A fantastic show stopper! The flavours are incredible and the dish is easier to put together than it reads. I actually cannot take much credit as it is one of my husband's signature dishes. He prepares the beef on the BBQ in a large stock pot; I am the sous chef on this one preparing the salad ;). You can prepare the salad in advance as well as the dressing. Add as much of the fresh herbs as you like. From the local paper. Great recipe if you are trying to reduce carbs. Recipe calories are lower than listed (only 500 per serving) as rice and brown sugar are not consumed but just used for the smoking
