Spicy Thai-style Beef Salad - TastyPlanner.com
A Thai-inspired, spicy, fresh and meaty salad dish. Great for special occasions – use only the best quality meat, and cook it rare to be at it’s best. This dish works with hot, freshly cooked beef, sliced and dressed or equally well cold so you can also make it with any left-over roast beef.
Recipe Source: Cookalicious
2 thick beef steaks (sirloin or rib-eye is best) cooked until rare
1 handful of Mint leaves, roughly chopped
1 small bunch of Coriander, roughly chopped
3 Chillies (add as many as you like), chop finely
3-4 Spring onions, sliced quite finely on the diagonal
2-3 cloves of Garlic, peeled and sliced very finely
1 lime, juiced
2 tbsp fish sauce,
1 tsp freshly ground black pepper (to taste)
1/4 tsp sprinkling of sugar (to taste)
Cut the cooked beef into thin strips or chunks (as you prefer). Mix together lime juice and fish sauce with some pepper and sugar. Combine all the herbs, garlic, spring onions, chillies and beef in a bowl and mix well. Pour over the dressing and mix again.
Serve with sticky rice and fresh vegetables: cucumber, green beans and cabbage or Chinese leaf.
