Spicy Asian Beef Salad

My mother-in-law gave me some leftover sirloin roast after a recent family dinner. I used it to make this salad just a few days before the new year.  It is incredibly quick and yummy but very spicy. If you are fearful of chillies, reduce the quantity or use the sweeter variety and don’t  forget to remove the seeds and pith. Serve with warm rice and green salad.


250 gm of cooked beef  ( I have used roasted beef sirloin)

2 shallots  (peeled and finely sliced)

2 tomatoes ( finely sliced)

a bunch of cilantro (roughly chopped – I have run out of this at the time so you don’t see it in the picture)

For the dressing:

2 bird-eye green chillies (finely chopped)

2 red chillies (finely chopped)

2 tablespoon of lemon juice

2 tablespoon  fish sauce

2 tablespoon of soy sauce

6 tablespoon of groundnut oil

Serves 4

First make the dressing. Mix all the dressing ingredients well.  Place meat, shallots, tomatoes  and half the cilantro in a bowl. Pour over the dressing and gently mix. Serve with the rest of cilantro as garnish.

That’s it!

Happy New Year

Happy New Year everyone!

As you can see, Mak Long’s Kitchen has taken on a new look this year and I’m hoping this new look will bring new vigour for me as the blog writer to keep this blog going. Looking back, I admit that I haven’t been very active in 2010. I will not attempt to make any excuses but I do sincerely apologise to those who have dropped by and taken the time to pen their comments and feedback and yet  have not  received any response.

Yesterday, I received my blog report from WordPress, and it appeared that  Mak Long’s Kitchen was viewed 25,000 times by visitors in 2010 alone. Now, I know this figure is nothing compared to veteran bloggers who achieve this number in just one month but if you consider that I posted only one article in 2010, I find it humbling. So, thank you from the bottom of of my heart.

I hope this new year will bring good health and prosperity to everyone of you.
