Hot and Sour Beef

For 2

250 Tender Steak
2 Tablespoons Fish Sauce
1 Shallot finely chopped
1 Teaspoon of Sugar
Dried Red Chilli seed, crushed (Quantity up to you...)

Optional for the sour - 2 Tablespoons of Lime Juice (1 fresh lime)

1] Grill the Steak, on a non stick griddle would be good, to your preference (it really should be rare, but each to your own on that one).

2] When the Steak is cooked, let it rest on a board and pour the juices from the pan into a bowl.

3] Mix the Fish Sauce, Shallot, Sugar and Chilli seeds into the bowl and stir/mash well.

4] Slice the Steak into really thin strips and mix into the bowl... It should still be warm at this point.

Serve on a bed of Rice, or Spicy Fried Cabbage etc
