I like this to have some bite but you should adjust the amount of chilli to suit yourself.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
500g fillet, rump or sirloin steak, cut in thick slices
8 shallots, finely sliced
or 1 1/2 small spanish onions, cut in two across and then thinly sliced lengthwise
2 tablespoons chopped mint
2 tablespoons chopped green coriander
4 medium-sized garlic cloves, smashed and chopped
6 small red chillies, sliced into julienne strips
or 1/2 tablespoon thai dried chilli flakes, or more
3 tablespoons lime juice
1 teaspoon sugar
2 tablespoons fish sauce
frilly lettuce leaves and diagonally sliced red chillies, for decoration

Method

  1. Grill the steak to medium-rare. Allow it to cool and then slice it across diagonally into slices 5 x 2.5 cm long and 1⁄2 cm thick. Put the beef slices, shallots, mint and coriander into a shallow dish. Make a dressing in a jar from the smashed garlic, chillies, lime juice, sugar and fish sauce, cover and shake well to mix. Check that it tastes right – it should be tangy, salty and hot in balance. Add more of any of the ingredients if you wish.
  2. Pour the dressing over the meat slices and herbs and toss gently. Line a serving plate with lettuce and arrange the meat nicely in overlapping slices on the lettuce. Garnish with diagonally sliced fresh red chillies.
  3. For a larger quantity for a party, which may not look so nice but will have absorbed more flavour, slice the meat more finely and mix everything together in a bowl first before heaping on to a lettuce-lined dish. Garnish with diagonally sliced fresh chillies as before.
