Thai Beef Salad

This is a great meal to have anytime as it doesn’t take much to put together and is extremely tasty!!! Some of you would have seen me post a picture of it on Zamamabakes Face Book page last week!!! I have finally got around to blogging the recipe.

I have Zabeautiful Trish to thank for making the suggestion of Thai beef Salad, resulting from the question I put up on Face Book ‘what should I make for dinner’?

I had a look at a few online recipes for some ingredient idea’s, I found they all differed slightly, this is what I ended up making. It was deliciously fresh and I will happily make it again.
You could use any selection of salad you desire and as for the meat again select what you enjoy best. Whatever you do I hope you enjoy this dish as much as ZaDada and I.
You should get at least 3 dinner serves out of the amount of ingredients listed. We had 2 main meals plus 2 smaller lunch serves the next day.


500g rump or sirloin steak

2 tablespoons soy sauce

1 garlic clove, crushed


1 packet Coles mixed lettuce leaves

1 carrot grated or thinly sliced

1/2 red capsicum finely sliced (I used some of a mixed packet of small red, yellow and orange capsicums)

10 snow peas thinly sliced lengthways

1 punnet grape tomatoes

1 Lebanese cucumber halved lengthways and sliced diagonally

1/2 cup natural cashew nuts to sprinkle over the top of salad and beef


1/2 teaspoon crushed garlic

1/2 teaspoon chilli (I keep dried chilli flakes in pantry for convenience)

1 Tablespoon fish sauce

1 1/2 Tablespoons lime juice

1 1/2 Tablespoons sweet chilli sauce

2 teaspoons soy sauce

1 teaspoon chopped palm sugar (you may want to add more or use less depending on your palate)

1 Tablespoon freshly chopped mint ( you may choose to use less or more again according to your taste, you may also like to add some fresh coriander in conjunction with or instead of mint). Zadada loathes the taste of coriander so I did not use it.

1. Combine all meat ingredients in a bowl/container to marinate in fridge (if your organised a few hours but I only did for 1 hour and I was still happy).
2. Combine all dressing ingredients and set aside
3. Arrange salad ingredients on dinner plates.
4. Cook steak to your liking and let rest for at least 4 minutes, cover with foil during this time.
5. Thinly slice steak into strips and arrange over the top of salad ingredients.
6. Garnish with cashew nuts
7. Pour a serve of salad dressing over the top
Enjoy, we loved it. Thanks for the inspiration Trish.
