1. Preheat a pan until very hot. Add a bit of cooking oil and spread it evenly across the bottom. Let the steak sit in the pan for around a minute to get a nice crust. Flip over the steak and repeat. Reduce heat to medium and cook to your liking. Wrap the meat in aluminum foil and allow to rest for about 5 minutes before slicing thinly.
In a bowl whisk together fish sauce, lime juice, bird’s eye chilies and sugar to taste. Toss in the mint leaves, cilantro, shallots and cherry tomatoes and mix well. Serve the salad mix on top of a bed of spinach and drizzle some dressing.
Grilled beef will produce even tastier results. Cooking time of the steak depend on how if you prefer it rare, medium rare or well done.
Meat should be at room temperature before grilling/cooking.
