2-3

A dish which captures the vibrant, aromatic freshness of the East, this speaks for itself and needs no other accompaniment. A lovely light lunch, this will also serve two as a more substantial meal, or you could use a little more steak if you want to stretch it to serve four.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient

For the salad

Quantity Ingredient
2 tablespoons dark soy sauce
1 tablespoon soft dark brown sugar
370g rump steaks
1 cucumber, peeled, deseeded and thinly sliced
1 tomato, deseeded and thinly sliced
6 radishes, thinly sliced
1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon chopped coriander leaves
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
50g pomegranate seeds, (optional but lovely)

For the dressing

Quantity Ingredient
2 tablespoons thai sweet chilli sauce
2 limes, juiced
1 lime, finely grated zest
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 red chilli, finely sliced
2 teaspoons fish sauce
1 sprig mint, leaves shredded

Method

  1. Mix together the soy sauce and brown sugar and pour on to the steak. Leave to marinate for 30 minutes.
  2. In the meantime, mix together all the ingredients for the dressing and set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix together all the vegetables and herbs for the salad and set aside.
  4. Heat the vegetable oil in a frying pan until hot but not smoking. Shake off any excess marinade from the steaks and sear them for two to three minutes on each side. They will be rare to medium-rare. Remove and leave to rest for 10 minutes.
  5. Cut the beef into thin slices and place in a bowl. Add a few spoons of the dressing and toss. Fold in all the salad ingredients, sprinkle with pomegranate seeds, if using, and fold in a little more dressing, serving the rest on the side at the table.
