  • 4 Cape Grim sirloin steaks
    1 bunch coriander, washed
    3cm Ginger, finely grated
    2 Garlic cloves, finely grated
    4 Long red chillies, seeded, thinly sliced on the diagonal
    2 Limes, zest and juiced
    2 tbls Fish sauce
    55g Brown sugar
    80ml Vegetable oil
    1 Red onion, halved, thinly sliced
    1 Lebanese cucumber, halved, seeded, thinly sliced
    1 cup Mint leaves, leaves picked
    Chopped roasted peanuts to serve
    Murray River Pink Salt
    Freshly cracked black pepper
    Extra-virgin olive oil
    Vegetable oil



1. Pre-heat BBQ until hot registers on the hood indicator.
2. To make nahm jihm, trim roots from coriander and rinse well. Pick leaves and reserve. Process coriander roots, ginger, garlic, half the chillies, lime zest and juice, fish sauce and brown sugar in a food processor until well combined and finely chopped.
3. For the salad, place onion, cucumber, reserved coriander leaves, mint, remaining chillies, beef mixture and ½ nahm jihm dressing in a large bowl and toss to combine, season with salt and pepper.
4. To cook the steaks, turn the BBQ to medium, lightly coat the steaks in vegetable oil, salt and pepper, drain off any excess oil, then place the steak on the BBQ grill and sear for 2 minutes.
5. Turn the steak with the raw side still facing up to achieve crisscross char-grill lines and wait for tiny drops of blood to form on the surface, (this is for medium rare) then turn over.
6. Cook the steak on the second side for about half the time as the first side.
7. Place steak on the BBQ resting rack with the BBQ turned off for and rest for 6 minutes.
8. To serve, place salad on a serving palter, slice steaks into thick pieces, and arrange on top of the salad, drizzle with remaining nahm jihm dressing and then scatter with peanuts.
