Ingredients

3 tbsp lime juice, freshly squeezed 1 1/2 lime
1 1/2 tbsp fish sauce (nam pla) 23 mL
4 tsp canola oil 20 mL
4 tsp sugar 16 g
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
3/4 dried chili peppers, finely chopped 0.4 g
400 g beef, top sirloin
120 g rice sticks (noodles)
1 cup broccoli, cut into florets 130 g
1 carrots, grated 100 g
1 1/3 cup soybean sprouts 90 g
2 tbsp fresh mint, finely chopped 6 g

Before you start

The steak may be cooked using an outdoor grill or in a pan on the stovetop.

Method

Marinate

  1. Put the lime juice, fish sauce, oil, sugar, garlic and chili pepper in a small bowl. Whisk until the vinaigrette is emulsified. Take 1-2 tablespoons of this vinaigrette and pour it in a shallow dish, setting aside the rest. Add the steak to the shallow dish, then turn it to coat well. Cover, put it in the refrigerator, and let it marinate 1 h.

Cook the rice sticks and broccoli

  1. Cook the rice sticks, drain and put them in a salad bowl.
  2. Prepare the broccoli: wash and cut off the florets. Peel off any tough skin from the stalks and cut them into small pieces. Blanch the broccoli in salted boiling water until crisp-tender (al dente), about 4 min. Drain well, then add it to the salad bowl.
  3. Prepare the other vegetables: Grate the carrots, wash and drain the sprouts. Finely chop the mint. Add the vegetables to the salad bowl, pour the vinaigrette over the salad, then toss well.

Broil or outdoor grill

  1. Preheat the outdoor grill.
  2. Put the steak on a warm rack and cook about 3 min per side. Alternatively, cook the steak in a thick-bottom pan.
  3. Transfer the steak to a cutting board, then let it stand for 5 min in order to reabsorb the meat juices. Slice thinly across the grain and on a diagonal bias. Arrange the slices on the noodle salad then serve.

Delicious. The fresh mint is essential. Will make again. Sadly not popular with my 2 year-old.

I have a feeling this one is going to become a staple around our place. Soooo yummy! The kids loved it, we loved it, the ingredients were very cheap and it was super easy to make. Here's a tip (don't think it was included in the recipe): to save dishes (and time), use a metal salad bowl for serving. Cook the Thai Noodles and blanch the broccoli at the same time in the in the salad bowl under some boiling water while you prepare the rest of the ingredients. When the noodles are cooked and the broccoli is bright green, drain both in a colander and rinse under cold water, combining with the rest of the ingredients. I think this saved a few minutes and a couple of bowls!
