Thai Style Beef Salad

By now readers of my blog may well have noticed that I have a love of spicy food, especially asian and mexican flavours. Hence quite a lot of recipes I post (except the baking) have this vague theme running through them. Today I was off to a job interview late afternoon and wanted something quick and easy but tasty to cook when I got home. This is really quick to prepare and to cook, and the dressing is to die for so it ticked all the boxes.

Thai Style Beef Salad

Ingredients:

2 small-medium fillet steaks

Mixed salad leaves – 2 large handfuls per person, washed and spun dry

2. Season the steaks on both sides. Heat up a griddle pan and add in the oil. when hot put in the steaks and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side depending on your preference, mine is medium rare. Rest the meat for at least 4 mins.

3. In a large salad bowl toss together the leaves, radish, cucumber and avacado then transfer onto 2 plates

4. When rested cut the steaks into thin slices and arrange on top of the salad.

5. Drizzle over some of the dressing and you are good to go!
