250g rice vermicelli

1/2 cup fresh mint
1/4 cup fresh shallot
1/4 cup fresh basil
1 carrot
200g pistachio
2 tablespoon of fried onion
250g beef slices
50g kale

Salt and pepper to season

Salad Dressing:

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

  • Rinse the fresh herbs: coriander, basil, mint and shallot under running cold water.

  • Marinate the beef slices in soy sauce, fish sauce, red wine, Worcestershire sauce, fried onion, salt and pepper for at least 30 minutes.

  • Place the pistachio nuts in a food processor and grind until coarse.

  • Soak the carrot stripes in sweet vinegar water.

  • Cook the vermicelli noodles according to the packet instructions.
  • Rinse the noodle under running cold water.
  • Keep it cool with ice.

  • Heat up a grill pan over medium-high heat. Add some olive oil and grill the beef slices until fragrant.

  • Add some slices of onion and kale.
  • Season with salt and pepper.

  • Place the cooled vermicelli noodles in a large serving platter.
  • Mix all the ingredients for the salad dressing in a separate jar.
  • Chop the coriander, mint, basil and shallots in small pieces and toss on top of the vermicelli noodles. Place the pickled carrots around the side.
  • Drizzle the salad dressing all over.
  • Garnish with fried onions and pistachio nuts on top.

  • Squeeze some lemon juice on top to lighten up the meal.

  • I just love the flavour explosion of this Vietnamese salad, the fresh herbs, the slippery noodles and the drizzle of lemon juice. It gets better from the first bite :)
