Ingredients

  • 300 grams / 0.66 lb. Rib fillet steak (thinly sliced)
  • 2 cups spinach leaves
  • 12 Snow peas
  • ½ Red capsicum
  • ½ medium Carrot
  • ½ medium Red onion
  • ½ small Cucumber
  • Vermacilli Noodles
  • 2 teaspoons Chilli Paste or Sambal Olek
  • 4 teaspoon Garlic (crushed)
  • 4 teaspoons Light Soy
  • 2 teaspoons Fish sauce
  • 4 teaspoons Lime Juice
  • 1 tablespoon Plain flour
  • Corriander and Mint leaves to garnish
  • 1 tabelspoon canola oil

Optional (See note 1)

  • Pinch Granualted Stevia (Note 1)

Instructions

  • Chop carrot, capsicum and cucumber into matchsticks, and thinly slice red onion
  • Place vermacilli noodles into a pot of boiled water and let sit for 4 to 5 mins. Then drain and set aside
  • Par dry beef with paper towel to remove moisture. Lightly coat beef strips in flour and shake off excess. (I put flour in a plastic bag and add the beef and give it a shake then remove the beef from the bag and shake off the excess flour)
  • Heat oil in wok and cook the beef strips until crispy.
  • The dressing: in a separate bowl or jug combine the chilli paste, garlic, soy, fish sauce and lime juice. Use a whisk to combine.
  • Add all the salad ingredients to a large salad bowl along with the vermacilli and pour half the dressing over. Reserve the other half for the meat
  • Add the crispy beef strips on top on the noodles and salad and pour over remaining dressing. Add coriander and mint leaves with a couple slices of lime to serve.
