I am surprised that someone felt it was so very spicy. I made the Thai skirt steak last night and we were surprised at how mild it was. The flavors of the red curry paste and lime zest were wonderful. It was certainly an easy recipe to throw together.
If I had one word to describe this recipe I would say: SPICY!!! The steak smelled good the whole while when I was cooking it and I was very much looking forward to eating it. Usually I'm okay with spicy things, but this was definitely too spicy for me. My family finished it, but I quote "after you kill a few taste buds it tastes pretty good!". If I am to make this again I would only put in 1.5tablespoons of curry paste and maybe some brown sugar.
Otherwise, carrots and appearance were very nice
