This simple thai noodle salad uses ready-cooked noodles and ready-made thai curry paste for a quick and easy answer to the midweek cooking dilemma.


  • 300g sirloin steak
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 tbsp red curry paste
  • Juice of 1 lime, plus extra wedges to serve
  • ½ tbsp fish sauce
  • 1 tbsp sweet chilli sauce
  • 300g ready-cooked rice noodles
  • 2 red chillies, finely sliced
  • Small bunch each of mint and coriander, leaves picked


  1. Rub the steak all over with the oil and curry paste, then set aside for 10 minutes or so. Heat a non-stick frying pan over a high heat and sear the steak for 2 minutes on each side until medium rare, then set aside to rest.
  2. Mix the lime juice, fish sauce and sweet chilli sauce in a small bowl, then set aside. Slice the steak into thin strips, then toss through the noodles along with the dressing, sliced chillies and herbs.
  3. Squeeze over a wedge of lime, then serve.
