  • 6 oz wide rice stick noodles
  • 1/4 red onion thinly sliced
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh coriander
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh mint
  • 3 tablespoons Thai basil leaves
  • 3 tablespoons basil leaves
  • 1/4 cup chopped unsalted peanut
  • 1/2 cup hot water
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons fish sauce
  • 2 Thai chili pepper seeded and thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tablespoons grated gingerroot
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar


Marinade: In glass baking dish, combine soy sauce, sesame oil, vegetable oil, garlic, ginger and sugar; add steak, turning to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 4 hours, turning occasionally. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 12 hours.)

Dressing: In jar with tight-fitting lid, shake water with sugar until dissolved. Add lime juice, fish sauce and chilies; shake to combine. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 5 days.)

Using vegetable peeler, slice cucumber lengthwise into thin strips, slicing around centre seeds. Slice carrot lengthwise into thin strips; set aside.

In large pot of boiling salted water, cook rice noodles for 6 to 7 minutes or until tender.

Drain and chill under cold water; drain and transfer to large bowl. Toss with dressing. Set aside.

Discarding marinade, place steak on greased grill over medium-high heat; close lid and grill, turning once, until desired doneness, about 8 minutes for medium-rare. Transfer to cutting board and tent with foil; let stand for 5 minutes. Thinly slice against the grain.

Add cucumber, carrot, onion, coriander, mint and basil to noodle mixture; toss to coat. Divide among bowls or plates; top with steak and sprinkle with peanuts.
