Here’s my promise to post my Simple And Easy Thai Beef Salad which my family likes very much. I made it for my daughter’s birthday last week. In fact we had it for the next 3 days. To read more about my daughters birthday and what I cooked for her, click on Daughter’s Birthday And A Special Friend. This is also an easy and impressive dish to prepare if you have a party.
The beef slices are very tender and flavourful and they blend with the salad very well. You can omit the beef if you want it purely vegetarian. The dressing is fabulous. It makes the salad taste so lip-smacking good. Here’s my Simple And Easy Thai Beef Salad recipe:
2 pieces beef rump steak (about 300g)
1/2t salt some ground black pepper
Sprinkle the salt, pepper and oil onto both sides of the steak. Heat up some oil in a frying pan and pan fry it until to the right texture you prefer. I love mine just done but do not overcook otherwise the beef will become tough.
Dish up. Let it cool down and then slice it thin.
1 packet salad (about 200 g)
1/2 cucumber (de-seeded and sliced into short thin strips)
1 small purple onion (peeled and sliced thinly)
1/2C coriander (washed and chopped roughly)
Mix all Ingredients B in a big salad bowl. If you are serving this for a party like what I did, you can prepare this ahead of time and just put the whole bowl into the fridge. Add the dressing before serving.
Ingredients C (Dressing)
2 pieces garlic (peeled and chopped)
1/2T fish sauce
Juice of half lemon
2T olive oil
2T Thai sweet chilli sauce
Mix all Ingredients C in a bowl. Pour over the salad and mix just before serving. If you like you can also toast some cashew nuts and sprinkle over the salad. You can also use hot chili sauce if you like it spicy. A little fragrant hot chili oil will give it a good punch.
