Chef's note: Banh hoi are the very thin, rectangular rice noodle sheets. Because they are difficult to prepare, banh hoi are usually served at special events such as weddings as a special treat.
* Coriander, spring onion, butter lettuce and garlic are to be split across various other dishes so please read each recipe carefully
1. Prepare the ingredients
Wash the vegetables. Crush or grate 1 garlic* clove per 2 people. Halve and slice the cucumber on the diagonal. Thinly slice 1 spring onion* per person on the diagonal. Pick the mint leaves. Cut some coriander* into 5cm pieces. Separate the lettuce* leaves and tear the larger leaves.
2. Make the sauce
Combine the soy, garlic and 1 teaspoon of sugar per person until the sugar is mostly dissolved.
3. Marinate the beef
Combine the beef with just enough sauce to coat the beef and leave to marinate for 5 minutes.
4. Make the spring onion oil
Heat 1 tablespoon of oil per person in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Add the spring onion and cook, stirring, for 30 seconds. Remove from the heat.
5. Prepare the banh hoi
Place the banh hoi into a sieve and place into a heatproof bowl. Pour boiling water over the banh hoi and let sit for 2 minutes or until soft. Remove from the heat and cool under running water.
6. Cook the beef
Heat a splash of cooking oil in a frying pan over high heat. Cook the beef, in batches, for 1 minute each side. Return all the beef to the pan and add the remaining sauce. Cook, stirring, until the sauce reduces and coats the beef.
7. To serve
Divide the herbs, lettuce, cucumber, beef and banh hoi between serving plates. Serve with the chilli jam and spring onion oil.
