  • 400g beef steak
  • 100g cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 Japanese cucumber, halved lengthways and thinly sliced
  • 1/2 onion, sliced
  • 1 red chillli, seeds removed, and sliced
  • 2 stalks coriander, chopped
  • 2-3 stalks Thai basil, chopped
  • 2-3 stalks fresh mint (daun pudina), leaves, torn
  • 2 tbsp toasted peanuts, coarsely chopped
  • 2 kaffir lime leaves, finely shredded
  • Dressing
  • 1 tbsp fish sauce
  • 1 1/2 tbsp freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1 tbsp grated ginger
  • 1 1/2 tbsp finely chopped palm sugar (gula Melaka)
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil

  1. Combine dressing ingredients in a bowl and whisk well together. Add in steak to marinate. Cover with cling film wrap and refrigerate, turning occasionally for 1-2 hours to develop the flavour.
  2. Remove steak from the marinade and grill for 2-3 minutes each side (for medium doneness) or until cooked to your liking. Remove to a plate and cover with foil and leave aside to set for 10 minutes. Thinly slice steak across the grain.
  3. Put cucumber, tomatoes, onion, chilli, coriander, mint, basil, kaffir lime leaves and peanuts in a large mixing bowl. Add in steak slices and drizzle in remaining dressing ingredients and gently toss well to combine. Serve immediately.
