  • 1 Beef Sirloin steak (from Grange Meat Co.)
  • Mixed salad greens (enough to serve 4)
  • 1 cucumber, sliced
  • 1 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 handful of mint leaves, roughly chopped
  • 1 handful of cilantro leaves, roughly chopped
  • 1 fresh red chilli, finely sliced (adjust to taste)
  • Salt (to season)
  • Pepper (freshly ground, to season)


  • 3 tbsp fish sauce
  • Juice of 2 large limes
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 fresh red chilli, finely chopped (adjust to taste)


Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to put together your Thai beef salad:

  1. Prepare the beef

Season your sirloin steak with salt and pepper. Heat a pan over high heat and add a little oil. Sear the steak for about 2-3 minutes on each side (for medium rare), or cook to your liking. Let it rest for a few minutes, then slice thinly against the grain.

  1. Make the dressing

Whisk together all the dressing ingredients in a bowl until the sugar dissolves. This Thai beef salad sauce is pivotal in marrying the flavours of the dish.

  1. Assemble the salad

In a large bowl, combine the salad greens, sliced cucumber, red onion, mint, and cilantro. Toss the salad ingredients with some of the dressing.

  1. Combine and serve

Add the sliced beef to the salad and drizzle more dressing on top. Toss everything gently to ensure the beef and greens are well coated with the Thai beef salad dressing. Serve immediately to enjoy the burst of flavours.
