  • Juice, 2 limes
  • 1 tbsp. kecap manis
  • 2 cm ginger grated
  • 2 tbsp. fish sauce
  • 2 tsp. chili paste
  • 1 lb. beef rump steak
  • 1 tbsp. vegetable oil

  • 1 Lebanese cucumber seeded, diced
  • 1 bunch coriander leaves picked
  • 6 oz. baby-leaf salad mix with beetroot
  • 2 tbsp. Thai-style salad dressing

In a medium bowl, combine lime juice, kecap manis, ginger, fish sauce, and chili paste. Add beef. Marinate 30 minutes at room temperature.

In a large frying pan, heat oil on high. Remove beef from marinade and cook 3-4 minutes each side (depending on thickness) for medium rare. Set aside on a plate, loosely covered with foil, 5 minutes to rest. Slice thinly.

In small bowl, combine tomatoes, cucumber, and 1/4 of the coriander. Season. In large bowl, combine salad mix, remaining coriander and dressing.

Heat tortillas following packet instructions. Fill each with a handful of salad, beef, tomato salsa, and sprinkle of peanuts. Accompany with sweet chili sauce, if liked.
