Thai Beef Salad

  • Sirloin or rump steaks
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 1/2 tsp brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • 2 tbsp light soy sauce
  • Half a cucumber
  • Handful of beansprouts
  • 1 red chilli
  • Handful of mint leaves
  • 1 little gem lettuce

First make the dressing. In a bowl, whisk a chopped garlic clove, brown sugar, lime juice and light soy sauce. Set aside.

Halve and de-seed cucumber, cut into sticks and put into a bowl. Add a handful of beansprouts, a de-seeded and finely sliced red chilli, a good handful of mint leaves and the torn-up leaves of a little gem lettuce. Toss well and divide between two plates.

Griddle, pan-fry or grill seasoned sirloin or rump steaks for two to five minutes each side, depending on how well done you like them.

To serve, place on a board and cut into slices, then divide between the plates and drizzle with the dressing.
