Ingredients

Thai beef rice paper rolls
  • 500 gram beef rump steak

  • 18 x 22cm rice paper wrappers
  • sweet chilli sauce

Method

Thai beef rice paper rolls
  • 1
    Pan-fry steak until seared on both sides and cooked to your liking. Transfer steak to a plate, cool slightly, then cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Cut chilled steak into wafer-thin slices.

    Place vermicelli in a heat-resistant bowl, cover with boiling water and stand for 5 minutes, stirring to separate strands. Drain vermicelli in a strainer, rinse under cold water, then drain again, pressing down firmly to remove excess liquid.

    Immerse a rice paper wrapper briefly in a dish of warm water to soften. Place wrapper on a chopping board. Spread approximately 1 tsp sweet chilli sauce on one end of wrapper, then layer a little lettuce, vermicelli and sliced steak over sauce. Start rolling up from filled end, turning in sides. When wrapper is half rolled up, place 1-2 coriander leaves on top and continue rolling up to enclose filling and coriander leaves and form a neat roll. Repeat this process with remaining wrappers and filling ingredients.

    Serve with extra sweet chilli sauce.
