Spicy Asian Beef salad

For when you are in Asian mood
Lynne invented this recipe when we had some left over steak. You could use left over roast beef or just sear off one small steak for a small salad
The dressing: 2T limejuice - 2 T fish sauce - 1 T palm sugar- 1 t red chilli paste or 2 finely chopped chillies (adjust to your own taste) – 1 clove garlic, crushed – 1 T sushi ginger (gari) finely sliced.
Green beans, carrots, courgettes cut into julienne strips – mixed herb salad leaves – 2 T extra fresh basil and/or coriander leaves – 2 squares of Chinese egg noodles – 1T Tamari soy sauce - 200g cold beef, sliced
Slice the beef into ½ cm slices. Mix up the sauce, then marinate the beef in half of it. Blanche the beans, carrots & courgettes for one minute in boiling water then refresh in ice cold water. Drain. Cook the noodles till they are just soft, drain, cool, then add the Tamari sauce. Mix the salad leaves, herbs and the julienned vegetables, then top with the beef. Drizzle over the rest of the sauce then top the dish with noodles and serve
