    2 tablespoons sugar
    2 tablespoons water, hot
    1/2 tablespoon sriracha sauce
    2 tablespoons fish sauce
    2 tablespoons lime juice

    1/2 cup vegetable oil
    2 stalks lemongrass, trimmed, tender inner parts only, minced
    1 tablespoon fish sauce
    1 tablespoon soy sauce
    1 tablespoon sugar
    1-1/2 pounds beef top loin steak

    2 green (firm ripe) mangos, peeled, pitted and thinly sliced
    1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced
    12 sprigs cilantro, chopped
    1/4 cup Asian basil leaves, torn into thirds
    3 tablespoons unsalted, roasted peanuts, crushed


    To make the dressing: Completely dissolve sugar in water; stir in fish sauce, lime juice and sriracha.

    To prepare the beef: Combine oil, lemongrass, fish sauce, soy sauce and sugar; stir until sugar dissolves. Add beef and coat thoroughly with marinade. Marinate at room temperature for 20 minutes. Grill beef over medium-hot heat until desired doneness is achieved; allow to rest before slicing, against the grain, into thin strips.

    To assemble and serve: Transfer grilled meat to a large bowl. Add mango, red onion and dressing; toss gently. Add cilantro and basil; toss gently again before plating. Garnish with peanuts.
