Spicy Beef Noodle Salad

This is a really easy and healthy salad which will make you forget you are actually eating something healthy. The important thing here is the sauce. I mean you could do without the beef (but who would want to?!?) and change up the vegetables but the sauce really just brings everything together. For this amazing sauce you will need:

  • Ginger (minced)
  • Lemongrass (minced)
  • Soy Sauce (half cup)
  • Fish Sauce (one big tablespoon)
  • Sriracha Chilli Sauce or chillies (as much as you like)
  • The juice of one lime (and more if needed)
  • Garlic (minced)
Mix all the ingredients together and keep tasting until it feels right – it should be salty and tangy. Chill in the fridge for at least an hour to infuse all the flavours…The best is to do a big batch and use it throughout the week in different salads, it will keep well for at least five days.
For this salad you will need:
  • Beef, seared and then sliced finely
  • Red Peppers, chopped.
  • Spring Onions, chopped.
  • Noodles, cooked according to instructions, chilled (I used thai bean vermicelli, but this would be nice with some thicker thai noodles).
  • Coriander, chopped finely.

To prepare it..well it’s a salad! So just mix everything up, add as much sauce and you want go eat this amazing tangy,spicy, fake salad.
