  • 1/2 kg of beef, sliced
  • 1 clove of garlic, chopped
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp grated ginger
  • 1 onion, sliced thinly
  • 2 red chillies, sliced lengthwise and deseeded
  • 1 small cup of roasted peanuts, preferably chopped
  • 1 1/2 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 200g cherry tomatoes, sliced into halves
  • 1 tbsp Thai fish sauce
  • 1 tsp soy sauce
  • 1 bunch each of mint, coriander and Thai basil (leaves only)
  • 1 cucumber, sliced thinly
  • 4 Kaffir lime leaves, sliced thinly


In a bowl, combine the fish sauce, sugar, lime juice, soy sauce, sesame oil, garlic as well as the ginger for the beef marinade. Set aside half of the marinade and add the beef slices to the rest. Cover the bowl containing the beef with plastic wrap and let it sit in the refrigerator for about two hours.

In a non-stick pan, grill the beef for about a minute or two on each side, depending on how well you like your meat done. Once grilled, cover with foil and let the meat rest for 10 minutes.

Finally, in a large bowl, add the onions, cucumber, tomatoes, mint, coriander, chilli, basil, lime leaves and the peanuts. Add the meat into the mix and drizzle it with the remaining dressing and toss.
