Thai Spicy Beef Salad Recipe

 

 

Ingredients

 

  • 2 Red Chillies
  • Fresh Mint
  • Seedless Red Grapes
  • 25 g Tomato Cherry Punnet
  • X1 teaspoon Rajah cracked black pepper
  • X1 teaspoon Chicken Powder 
  • x1 teaspoon Rapeseed Oil
  • 1x cucumber 
  • Sirloin Steak (prefferably 8oz & 21 day matured)
  • 1/2 Red Onion
  • Baby Gem Lettuce

 

Spicy Sauce
Lemon Juice x1 Tablespoon
Red Chilli x1 
Coriander x1 teaspoon
Fish Sauce (or soy sauce) x1 Tablespoon 
Sugar x1 Table Spoon
Mix Spicy sauce ingredients together with a pestle and mortar. 



Method

1. Prep the spicy sauce by (very) finely cutting the chillies and adding the lemon juice, coriander, fish sauce and the sugar and placing into the pestle and mortar to mix together. Keep mixing together until your sauce is at a thin consistency.

Tip: The spicy sauce ingredients used in this recipe will provide a medium heat. For those that love the heat - feel free to add extra chilli to really get the taste buds tingling. 

2. Using a peeler, slice a long strip of cucumber. This will be used later on to hold the bulk of the salad together. Then slice the grapes, cherry tomatoes and chilli into small thin chunks.

3. Place the sirloin steak onto the pre-heated grill and cook until medium*. Once cooked, leave to rest and slightly cool. Once cool, cut at a slight angle into chunky slices. 

4. Prep the cucumber into a loop and place it into the dish. Toss the mint, mixed salad leaf, grapes with the dressing and place in the centre of the cucumber loop.

5. Place your prepared steak onto the dish on top of the salad and slightly toss/mix through, so that the dressing from the salad begins to slightly layer the meat.

6.Garnish the plates with the chopped cherry tomatoes. Place a few mint leaves and a few extra pieces of thinly chopped chillies on top of the salad.

*How to tell if your steak is cooked to your preference...

  • Rare steaks. Make a circle with your index finger and thumb, press the ball on the palm side of your thumb. Steaks with the same soft texture will be rare.
  • Medium-rare steaks. Make a circle with your middle finger and thumb, press the ball of thumb. Steaks with the same soft and springy feel will be medium rare.
  • Medium steaks. Make a circle with your ring finger and thumb, press the ball of thumb. Steaks with the same springy feel will be medium.
  • Well done steaks. Make a circle with your little finger and thumb, press the ball of thumb. Steaks with the same firm feeling will be well done.
