Method

  1. Put the noodles in a large heatproof bowl. Pour over a kettleful of water and leave for about 4 mins until softened. Drain in a colander then rinse under cold water.
  2. Heat a heavy non-stick frying pan over a high heat. Trim any fat from the steaks. When hot, sear the steaks for 2-3 mins each side. Remove from the heat and leave to rest while you make the salad.
  3. Mix together the lime juice, vegetable oil and fish sauce, add the strips of chilli and give it a good stir. Combine the beansprouts, coriander and basil, then stir in the lime and chilli mix.
  4. Thinly slice the steaks into strips and toss together with the other ingredients. Divide the noodles between four plates and pile the beef salad on top. Serve with sweet chilli sauce, if you like.

I thought the flavours were fantastic, including exactly the right amount of chilli for me. I had to use egg noodles (which I know are not Thai!) because I couldn't find my rice noodles. I would definitely have this again.

this is easy but it could be improved by adding chili or what ever you feel comfortable with and there is no need for the pickled leaves it is just as nice
