Thai(ish) beef salad

I love it when you throw together a meal not quite knowing how it’s going to turn out and BOOM you find yourself with┬ásomething┬áthat you add to the rotation without a second thought.

This is one of those meals. It’s super easy, quick, healthy and bonkers delicious (I may have just channeled Joy the Baker).


Step one: Prepare salad. This one has red and green peppers, a tomato, half an avocado, half a red onion, snow peas, red and green chilli (seeds removed because I am a chilli wuss), coriander (cilantro), mint, 1.5tsp fish sauce, the juice of one lime, and salt and pepper. I chop everything so it’s long and skinny, no particular reason, I just like the look of it.

Recipe wise this served 2. What you put in the salad is 100% up to you, I had carrots out on my bench too but they were neglected this time. The steak is eye fillet, but if you have a cut you prefer use that! If there is just one of you make a smaller salad and cook up just one piece of steak- and remember to half the amount of fish sauce, nothing stuffs up your salad quicker than too much fish sauce. It you’re cooking for a crowd load the bowl and bbq up.
