Little crispy bites of tofu are the perfect balance to the salty flavours in this Thai beef salad. Simple to make and very flavourful.

  • 200g firm tofu, cut into cubes
  • 4 cos lettuce leaves, torn
  • 1/2 cup fresh mint, torn
  • 1/2 cup Thai basil, torn
  • 1 cucumber, peeled and sliced
  • 1 red onion, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon oil
  • 100g steak, cut in thin strips
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • Dressing

  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 Thai chilli, finely diced

Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:5min  ›  Extra time:30min drying  ›  Ready in:55min 

  1. Put the tofu cubes on paper towels and let sit 30 minutes so they give up some of their moisture.
  2. In a salad bowl, combine lettuce, mint, basil, cucumber and onion.
  3. Make the dressing: combine the lime juice, fish sauce, sesame oil, sugar and Thai chilli and whisk until the sugar has dissolved. Drizzle half the dressing over the lettuce and toss.
  4. Heat a heavy frypan with 1 teaspoon oil and add the tofu and beef. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and cook until everything is seared, about 5 minutes. Add the remaining dressing to deglaze and stir around. Add the tofu and beef to the salad and serve.
