Thai food is all about creating a balance between spicy, sweet, sour, salty and bitter tastes and Simon Rimmer has the perfect mouth-watering salad to fire up your palate in any weather!


1. First make the dressing by blending the lemon grass, salt, fish sauce, lime juice, garlic, coriander, shallots and sugar.

2. Season the steak and griddle for 1 minute on each side (or to your preference).

3. Slice the steak, lay the drained noodles in the bottom of the bowls, add everything else and eat immediately.

I cooked this last night having watched the programme the previous night. However I found the recipe rather vague? I seem to remember something about the cucumber being salted first and also could not remember if the steak was rested in the normal way after griddling?
Anyway I was in a hurry and did neither and the result was pretty good with that amazing salty, sour, hot taste of Thai food, although I used only one bird's eye chilly which I did not de-seed. I also griddled the beef for 2 minutes each side and it was still good and bloody in the middle! Guess it depends on the thickness though. I tried to give this recipe 3 stars but it only accepted one? I guess Simon Rimmer must be very modest?

I love thai beef salad. And your recipe is much more easier than I got it from my thai friend. I will definitely try making it real soon. Thank you.
