I have used Lebanese cucumbers and filled them with a spicy Thai beef and as it was only a small amount of meat, I used the eye of fillet steak.
The secret of Thai spicy beef is not to cook the steak for long as it should be pink inside.
: 30 minutes
: 5 - 10 minutes
: 8 -10 cucumber cups
2 large Lebanese cucumbers (fat ones)
120 g beef fillet steak
1 small shallot, sliced finely
10 fresh mint leaves, sliced finely
1 tbsp coriander leaves, chopped finely
¾ tbsp fish sauce
¾ tbsp lime juice
½ chilli, seeded, and finely chopped
½ tsp coconut sugar (or brown sugar)
Coriander leaves, to garnish
You should be able to see "pink" on the sides
Leave this for several minutes or longer.
