Prep Time: 10 minutes -mostly to preheat the grill
Cook Time: 8 minutes
Rest Time: 10 minutes

Serves 4

1 lb/450g rib eye or strip loin steak (depending on the eaters and what else you’re serving, I suggest 1-2 steaks)

1English cucumber, thinly sliced
½ cup fresh cilantro leaves
½ cup fresh mint leaves
1 large chili pepper, seeded and finely sliced
2 shallots, preferably Asian, finely sliced
3 tbsp brown sugar
¼ cup lime juice
¼ cup Thai fish sauce
¼ cup unsalted roasted peanuts, roughly chopped

1. Rub the beef with the oyster sauce. Grill for 3 minutes per side or until medium rare. Remove from the pan and allow to rest for 10 minutes before thinly slicing across the grain.

2. Transfer the meat to a serving bowl and add the cucumber, cilantro, mint, chili and shallots.

3. In a small bowl, mix together the sugar, lime juice and fish sauce until the sugar dissolves. Drizzle the dressing over the beef dish and gently toss.
