Fresh Salad Rolls with Marinated Beef Recipe

Ingredients :

    • 12 pieces dried rice paper wrappers
    • Handful (50 g/2 oz) dried rice vermicelli (beehoon), soaked until soft, drained and cut into long threads
    • 100 g (1 cup) grated or thinly shredded carrot
    • 150 g (1 cup) thinly sliced cucumber
    • 65 g (11/3 cups) bean sprouts
    • 1 portion Vietnamese Dipping Sauce
    • Vietnamese Herb Accompaniments

Marinated Beef :

    • 350 g (11 oz) flank steak or beef sirloin
    • 1 clove garlic, minced
    • 2 shallots, minced
    • 1/2 tablespoon finely minced ginger
    • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce
    • 1 tablespoon fish sauce
    • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
    • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper

Method :

    1. Prepare the Vietnamese Dipping Sauce.
    2. Prepare the Marinated Beef by slicing the beef into long thin strips about 6-mm (1/4-in) thick. Combine with the rest of the ingredients and marinate the beef overnight or at least 3 hours in the refrigerator.
    3. Heat a skillet or grill pan over high heat.Make sure that the pan is hot and then cook the Marinated Beef, stirring occasionally, until done, about 3–4 minutes.
    4. To make a spring roll, briefly dip a dried rice paper wrapper in a bowl of water until soft. Remove and place on a dry surface, smoothing it with your fingers. Arrange a few noodles on the wrapper, closer to one edge, and top with some carrot, cucumber and bean sprouts. Arrange strips of the beef on top as shown. Fold the closest edge of the wrapper over the filling, then fold in the sides and roll up tightly. Repeat until all the ingredients are used up.
    5. Arrange the spring rolls, either sliced into segments or whole, on a serving platter and serve with bowls of the Vietnamese Dipping Sauce and Vietnamese Herb Accompaniments on the side. To eat, place a piece of the Spring Roll on a piece of lettuce and top with herbs of your choice.Wrap the lettuce around the contents and dip in the Vietnamese Dipping Sauce.
