  1. Mix oil, garlic, ginger, fish sauce and sugar and marinate the steak in this mix for 30-60 minutes.
  2. Combine all the dressing ingredients.
  3. Slice the cucumber thinly using a mandolin or potato peeler. Blanch the beans in boiling water for 1 minute then refresh in iced water and drain. Mix the cucumber and beans with the basil, shallot and lettuce in a large bowl.
  4. Fry the steak over a hot heat (to ensure it does not stew) until just cooked. Mix through the salad, drizzle over the dressing and sprinkle with crushed peanuts. Serve with small bowls of steamed rice.
