Asian Spicy Beef Salad – Quick, easy and delicious

Asian Spicy Beef Salad
RatingDifficultyIntermediate

After spotting two beef steaks at the yellow sticker section of the supermarket and with the kids at their mums for a few days, I decided to and some spice to my evening meal. This recipe covers two good sized portions and I actually had the second one for lunch the next day.

My Asian spicy beef salad is my take on a recipe found in many parts of South East Asia such as Vietnam and Thailand.

Salad Dressing
1

Put the chilli and garlic into a pestle and mortar and grind and bash them together. If you don't have a pestle and mortar, use a small saucepan and the end of a rolling pin.

2

Chuck the remaining salad dressing ingredients into the pestle and mortar and mix them together. Before setting aside.

3

While heating some oil in the frying pan, season the beef steaks with some salt. Once the pan is hot place the steaks in and cook for about 2 1/2 minutes on each side. When cooked place the beef steaks on a plate to rest for at least 10-15 minutes.

If you don't hear the meat sizzle when putting it into the hot oil, it isn't hot enough so remove until the pan is hotter

Preparing the salad
4

While you are resting the meat, it is time to get the salad prepared and mixed. To do this, simply add it all together into a large bowl and mix it with your hands. Then slowly add a bit of the salad dressing. Tasting as you go, until the perfect amount is mixed in.

5

To serve, I sliced the beef into thin strips and placed it on a pile of the mixed salad and dressing.
