Vietnamese beef and noodle salad

all details

The warmer weather is perfectly suited to eating Vietnamese and Thai salads - tangy, fiery and pungent, and packed with fresh herbs. I love the contrast of soft and crunchy; slippery rice noodles with crisp cucumber, firm peanuts and chips of chilli.

Ingredients

  • Title:For the salad
  • 350g porterhouse or fillet of beef
  • 4 tbsp hoi sin sauce
  • 200g mung-bean thread (also called glass) noodles
  • 1 cup each of mint, Thai basil and coriander leaves
  • 1 Lebanese cucumber, thinly sliced
  • 2 long red chillies, deseeded and finely sliced
  • 4 tbsp crushed roasted peanuts
  • 2 tbsp fried shallots
  • Title:For the dressing
  • 3-4 tbsp grated palm sugar
  • juice of 2 limes
  • 3 tbsp fish sauce
  • 1 stick of lemon grass, white part, finely sliced

Method

Marinate the beef in the hoi sin for 2 hours. Soak the noodles in hot water until soft. Drain, rinse in cold water and cut into manageable lengths (about 10cm). Combine the herbs, cucumber, chilli and noodles in a bowl. Combine the dressing ingredients and adjust to taste. It should taste sweet, salty and tangy all at once.

Grill the beef to medium rare and allow to rest for 5 minutes. Slice thinly and add to the salad. Toss everything together and serve on plates sprinkled with the roasted peanuts and fried shallots.
