What's Cooking Wednesday #5

Each week, I am trying out a recipe from one of my recipe books. This recipe comes from the Best Of Annabel Langbein cookbook again, as she has some fabulous recipes.

My eldest son cracks me up- while we were trying this week's dinner he proclaimed; "it's not too bad, only a little bit bad." I took that as a compliment though as all my family had clean plates after this dinner, which was perfect after an extremely hot day.

Thai Beef Salad
adapted from The Best Of Annabel Langbein

4 thick beef fillet steaks (about 500g)
1 red onion, finely diced
1/2 cucumber, cut into thin strips
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
3/4 cup mint leaves (I chopped these very finely)
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons fish sauce
1 teaspoon sugar
1/4 cup sweet chilli sauce
1 teaspoon minced coriander
1 tablespoon lime juice

Grill or pan fry the beef to your liking. Cool, then cut into slices. Mix with the combined dressing ingredients then toss with the remaining salad ingredients.

I served this mixed through with some cold angel hair noodles to make it more filling, but you could serve this as is or with rice, rice noodles or over a lettuce mix.

As I mentioned above, everyone really liked this. I added the chilli sauce to only the adult portions, and it was not too overpowering.

Linking up with Wake Up Wednesdays.

  1. Normally I wouldn't have tried this, but the picture you have with noodles looks very good. I probably wouldn't cook it, but I sure would eat it if put in front of me, lol.


  2. This looks so delicious, and I just bought some fish sauce last week for a curry so clearly I am meant to make it. I think we'll use the lettuce wraps idea. Thanks for sharing this, I love trying new healthy recipes! Stopping by with BYB :)

  3. This looks super delicious. Something that the kids would love thank you for the idea and recipe

  4. Now this looks delicious! I really want to try this!! Yummy!!
