A new, exotic way to eat a steak. Using all the fabulously fresh ingredients from Vietnam. Really delicious.

Enough for 4 steaks

RECIPE:

INGREDIENTS:

4 large rump steaks (scored with a sharp knife)

Marinade:
2 lemon grass stalks (very finely chopped)
2 shallots (very finely chopped)
2 cloves garlic (finely chopped)
1 red chilli (seeded and very finely chopped)
2 teaspoons sugar
2 tablespoons fish sauce
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon peanut oil

DIRECTIONS:
Combine all the ingredients together and with a hand blender or in a food processor, gently pulse the mixture to further combine. Cover the steaks with the marinade and rub into the flesh. Cover with plastic wrap and refridgerate for 1-2 hours. Heat the BBQ till very hot, then cook each steak till it’s done to your liking, basting in the remaining marinade as you cook to keep the meat juicy.

SERVING:
Serve with light soy sauce mixes with a little fish sauce. Or if you can get it, some Vietnamese shrimp sauce to dip the meat in. Alternatively you can thinly slice the beef and make yourself a fresh Vietnamese Beef Salad with some noodles, cucumber, carrot, radish, mint, ginger, thai basil, a little sesame oil, salt & pepper.
