Spicy Sesame Beef
Get some beef, I bought tenderloin. Now for the FUN part… if you have any stress in your life, douchebag ex or boss etc, this is for you. Stick the chunk of beef into a ziplock bag and bash the hell out of it (or at least until its about a cm thick). Then cut the beef into strips and marinate in a bowl with grated ginger, red chili, toasted sesame seeds, soy sauce, sushi vinegar, and a little lime. Only need to marinate for about 10-15 mins.
While the beef marinates, dice cucumbers finely and toss together with coriander, ginger, and lime juice. Season with salt.
Back to the beef…
Stir-fry your steak, I cook for about 3-4 mins. The pan needs to be really hot so that the meat browns quickly and the sauce gets sticky.
Then make your “cups.” Take a lettuce leaf and into the middle spoon in some of the cucumber mixture. Top with the seared beef, and a little more cucumber salad.
Sit back, possibly with a beer or some white tea with ginger, reflect on how “good” you’re being and enjoy! x
