Vietcong Salad

Not your usual saturday lunch starter but what the fuck... Cooked this before some Italian food which was a little random, even for me. But it was all good in the hood.

Vietcong Salad

500g/17½oz sirloin steak
1 Romaine lettuce (chopped)
1 beefsteak tomato (chopped)
5 shallots (chopped and fried with peanuts until almost burnt)
50g/2oz peanuts, roasted and chopped

Slice the beef into 1inch strips and marinade in a bowl with:

1 red chilli, roughly chopped
4 tsps garlic & ginger paste
1 lime juice only
1 tbsp brown sugar
3 tbsp dark soy sauce
2 tbsp kecap manis (sweet soy)
2 tbsp oyster sauce
1 tbsp fish sauce
2 tbsp tomato ketchup
1 tsp freshly ground black pepper

Marinade steak for as long as possible... 

Make your salad in individual bowls...then cooking steak in a skillet or wok.

After 3 mins add the rest of the marinade, then cook for a couple more mins before serving on top of salad.

Sprinkle peanuts and shallots on top...
