salt and pepper

1 tsp olive oil

100g vermicelli noodles

75g coriander leaves

Tenderise steak by pounding with a mallet (or rolling-pin) and season with salt and pepper.

Heat oil in frying pan to high heat, add steak and cook for 3 minutes on each side (If you want steak well done cook for longer). Take meat off heat and transfer to a plate. Cover with tinfoil to keep warm. Soak the noodles in boiling water for 2 minutes, drain in a sieve, rinse with cold water and drain again.

Divide the vermicelli between 4 serving bowls.

In a large bowl toss the bean shoots, cucumber, herbs and chilli.

In a bowl mix sugar, lime juice and fish sauce

Thinly slice the beef and leave on top of the salad, drizzle with dressing and top with peanuts.
