Asian-style beef salad

This salad is delicious and so easy to make. I like to marinade the steaks for at least a few hours, but if you don’t have time an hour is okay. The combination of salad ingredients varies as I usually put it together with whatever I have in the fridge and pantry.


Serves 2

For the marinade

4 tbsps sweet soy sauce

4 tbsps olive oil

Juice of 2 limes

Dash of fish sauce

Mix the marinade ingredients. Cut any fat off the steak and rub well with the marinade. Cover and leave in the fridge for a few hours.

For the salad

Half a bag of butter lettuce

12 cherry or mini plum tomatoes, halved

1 small red onion, thinly sliced

1 avocado, peeled and sliced

2 small handfuls of peanuts, dry fried

2 medium sirloin steaks

Assemble the salad. Quick fry the steaks in a hot pan for about 4mins each side. Slice the steak and place on top of the salad.
