Oriental beef skewers with cucumber saladThese skewers taste better than any takeaway – and they’re low fat too.
Takes 15 minutes • Serves 4
– 4 thin-cut sirloin or minute steaks, trimmed of any fat and each cut into 3 long strips
– 120ml sachet stir-fry sauce (we used oyster & spring onion)
– 1 tbsp sesame seeds
FOR THE SALAD
– 1 tsp white wine vinegar
– 1 tsp light soy sauce
– 1 cucumber
– 3 spring onions, sliced
– ½ red chilli, seeded
– a handful of fresh coriander leaves basmati rice, to serve (optional)
Heat the grill to high. In a bowl, mix the steak strips with the stir-fry sauce and sesame seeds.
Thread on to 12 skewers (pre-soak if wooden), then grill for 6 minutes, turning halfway through, until golden and a little sticky.
Meanwhile, prep the salad ingredients. Mix the vinegar and soy together. Cut the cucumber into
chunks and chop the spring onions, chilli and coriander. Mix everything into the dressing. Serve with the beef skewers and some rice, if you like.
