ingredients

directions

  • Cut the steak into bite-sized cubes. Place it in a bowl with garlic, oil, fish sauce, sugar, salt, and pepper and mix to combine. Cover and marinate for 1 hour in the refrigerator.
  • Wash the lettuce and separate the leaves. Cut the cucumber and onion into very thin slices.
  • Heat a heavy-based wok very hot; add the beef in 3 batches and toss, by shaking the wok and turning the meat with tongs, until brown and seared on the outside but still very pink in the center.
  • Pile the meat into the center of a serving plate, decorate with lettuce, cucumber, and onion, serve immediately.
  • NOTE: Prep time does not include marinating time.

    Terrific. I planned ahead and marinated the beef for almost three hours. I did add a little ginger to the marinade and I was pleased that I did. Next time, I think I'd add some chili oil or crushed red pepper to have more of a contrast against the cool cucumbers and the rest of the salad. Overall, this is a good and easy salad that is really adaptable to your tastes. Thanx!

    This was a great, quick to put together dish - if you don't count the marinating time. I loved the flavor of the marinade, and the presentation with the red onion and cucumbers. I was in a bit of a hurry, so only marinated the beef for about 30 minutes and it was still wonderful. Can't wait to try it again with the full marinating time. Thanks for posting!
