Thai saladHere is a spicy little dish, rich in protein, vitamins and minerals through a rich variety of veggies, herbs and nuts, and packed with flavour.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 tbs fresh lime juice
  • 1 tbs finely chopped dark palm sugar
  • 1 tbs fish sauce
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp soy sauce
  • 2 tsp finely grated fresh ginger
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 (about 680g) beef rump steak
  • 1 x 200g pkt grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1 continental cucumber, halved lengthways, thinly sliced diagonally
  • 1 red onion, halved, cut into thin wedges
  • 2 long fresh red chillies, halved, deseeded, thinly sliced lengthways
  • 1 bunch fresh mint, leaves picked, large leaves torn
  • 1 bunch fresh coriander, leaves picked
  • 1 bunch fresh Thai basil, leaves picked, large leaves torn
  • 55g (1/3 cup) toasted peanuts, coarsely chopped
  • 4 kaffir lime leaves, centre veins removed, finely shredded
  • Plus I added:
  • 2 small sized carrots, cut into strips
  • Green Oak lettuce, 3 handfuls

Method:

Whisk together lime juice, palm sugar, fish sauce, sesame oil, soy sauce, ginger and garlic in a jug. Place the steak in a glass or ceramic dish. Drizzle with half the dressing. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge, turning occasionally, for 2 hours to develop the flavours

Preheat a barbecue grill or chargrill pan on high. Cook steak on grill for 2-3 minutes each side for medium or until cooked to your liking. Transfer to a plate. Cover with foil and set aside for 10 minutes to rest.

Place the tomato, cucumber, onion, chilli, mint, coriander, basil, peanuts, carrot, lettuce and lime leaves in a large bowl.

Thinly slice steak across the grain and add to the salad. Drizzle with remaining dressing and gently toss to combine. Divide salad among bowls and serve immediately.

Serves 4

I got the majority of the recipe from this one: http://www.taste.com.au/recipes/3216/thai+beef+salad

But I added a few things as well, and I actually used less of the herbs in mine.

Enjoy!
