Thai Beef Salad

Recipe by Sackville
READY IN: 30mins




  • Mix the chili flakes and garlic together.
  • Mix in the lime or lemon juice, fish sauce, sugar, sliced lemongrass and red onions.
  • Boil the beans in a pot of water for just for a couple minutes. Rinse in cool water and drain.
  • Cut the cucumber in half lengthwise and use a spoon to scoop out the seeds. Cut into half-moon shapes.
  • Mix the beans, tomatoes, cucumber, grapes and most of the herbs together in a salad bowl.
  • Heat up a frying pan or griddle until very hot.
  • Smear the meat with oil on both sides and cook for 2-4 minutes on each side. This will leave a bit of pink in the middle.
  • If you want it well done, adjust the cooking time as necessary.
  • Let the meat rest for five minutes before slicing, then lay it on a work surface and slice it thinly on a slant.
  • Spoon most of the dressing mixture you prepared earlier over the salad.
  • Slide the steak slices through a bit of the remaining dressing, then arrange it over the salad.
  • Decorate with the leftover herbs and serve.
