Grill the sirloin steaks until they are medium-rare, then allow to rest for 10-15 minutes.

When cool, thinly slice the beef and put the slices in a large bowl.

Add the sliced onion, cucumber matchstick and lemon grass.

Add the spring onions. Toss and season with lime juice and fish sauce. Serve at room temperature or chilled, garnished with the chillies, coriander, mustard cress and mint.

COOK'S TIP:- Rump or fillet steaks would work just as well in this recipe. Choose good-quality lean steaks and remove and discard any visible fat.
