This is a really economical way to use steak (and much healthier) as two people can share one steak!
For the steak
2 x 200g sirloin steaks
For the dressing
Half a red chilli, deseeded and finely diced
1 clove garlic, crushed
Small piece ginger, peeled and grated
1 tbsp soy sauce
Juice of 1 lime
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp palm sugar (golden caster sugar if not available)
For the salad
2 baby gem lettuce
2 carrots, peeled into ribbons
1 slightly under ripe mango, peeled and julienned
100g bean sprouts
4-5 radishes, thinly sliced
1 tbsp sesame seeds
1 red chilli, sliced to garnish
Fresh coriander, to garnish
Whisk all of the dressing ingredients together. Set to one side.
Take half of the dressing and marinade the steaks for an hour if time allows. Preheat a non stick pan then cook the steaks for 2-3 minutes per side for medium, or couple of minutes either way for rare or well done steak.
Remove from the pan and set aside to rest for 5 minutes
Take a vegetable peeler then peel ribbons of the carrot. In a dry pan, lightly toast the sesame seeds.
Take the rest of the dressing then pour over the salad, toss together to coat before portioning between four plates, garnish with the toasted sesame seeds. Finally portion the thinly sliced beef between the salads and garnish with coriander and fresh chilli.
