Laotian Beef Salad Recipe

Laotian Beef Salad Recipe

Ingredients :

500 g rump steak

4 tablespoons lemon juice

2 tablespoons lemon grass (white part only), chopped finely

1 tablespoon fish sauce

4 tablespoons water

1 medium onion, sliced finely

2 tablespoons fresh cilantro leaves, chopped

1 tablespoon fresh mint, chopped

2 cucumbers, chopped

1/2 small Chinese cabbage, shredded

 

Method :

Heat up your grill and char-grill the steak for about 3 minutes on both sides or until the meat is medium rare. Remove, cover and set aside for 5 minutes to cool. Use a sharp kitchen knife to slice the steak into 5 mm thick. Heat the water in a wok, add the sliced beef and cook over medium heat for 2 minutes. Do not overcook. Transfer the beef and liquid to a non-metallic bowl. Add the lemon juice, lemon grass, fish sauce, onion, coriander and mint and mix until well combined. Cover and leave in the fridge for 2 hours to marinate. Stir in the chopped cucumber. Serve the salad on a bed of shredded cabbage, garnished with extra mint leaves if you prefer.
