Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Crunchy Asian Beef & Vermicelli Salad

Preheat the oven to 200°C/ 180°C (fan)/ 400°F/ Gas 6

Add the roasted peanuts to a baking tray and put it in the oven for 5 min or until the peanuts are toasted and coloured

Once coloured, remove from the oven and set aside

Meanwhile, boil a kettle

2 Crunchy Asian Beef & Vermicelli Salad

Add the rice vermicelli noodles to a wide-based pot

Pour enough boiled water over to submerge them fully

Leave the noodles to sit for 4-5 min, off the heat

Once done, drain, rinse them under cold water and return them to the pot

Tip: cut the noodles up with a knife and fork for easy eating!

3 Crunchy Asian Beef & Vermicelli Salad

Meanwhile, peel the ginger (scrape the skin off with a teaspoon) and finely chop (or grate)

Zest and juice the lime[s] into a small bowl

Tip: try to grate lightly with a micro-plane or sharp box grater and avoid grating the white pith, as this is very bitter!

 

4 Crunchy Asian Beef & Vermicelli Salad

Heat 1 tbsp [2 tbsp] vegetable oil in a wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) over a medium-high heat

Once hot, add the ginger and beef mince with a pinch of salt and cook for 10 min or until cooked and starting to crisp

5 Crunchy Asian Beef & Vermicelli Salad

Meanwhile, combine the rice vinegar, chilli flakes (can't handle the heat? Go easy!) and soy sauce with 2 tbsp [4 tbsp] sugar and 1 tbsp [2 tbsp] vegetable oil- this is your finishing sauce

Add 2 tsp [4 tsp] olive oil to the lime zest and juice and season lightly with salt and pepper- this is your zesty lime dressing 

6 Crunchy Asian Beef & Vermicelli Salad

Shred the little gem[s] finely 

Trim then slice the spring onions finely

Peel the carrot[s], then continue to peel lengths until you end up with a pile of carrot 'ribbons'

Combine the carrot, lettuce and spring onion in a large mixing bowl

7 Crunchy Asian Beef & Vermicelli Salad

Chop the toasted peanuts coarsely (or bash them up in a bag with a rolling pin)

Add the finishing sauce to the beef and stir-fry quickly for 2 min or until the sauce is reduced and sticky

Combine the noodles with the carrot, lettuce, spring onion and the zesty lime dressing (use your hands for ease)
