vegetable oil, for greasing
100g bag baby spinach leaves
2 ripe but firm papaya, peeled, deseeded and sliced
1 small pack coriander, leaves picked

1 red chili, thinly sliced
For the dressing
1 tbsp rapeseed oil
1 tsp sesame oil
1 tsp garlic infused oil
juice 2 limes
3 tbsp soft brown sugar
1½ tbsp fish sauce

Season the steak well. Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan.
Sear the steaks for 2 mins each side, then remove and leave to rest for 5 mins. When rested, thinly slice.
Mix the dressing ingredients together with 1 tbsp water until the sugar is dissolved.
Arrange the spinach, beef, papaya, herbs, cucumber, scallion and chili on a platter.
Pour the dressing over half the salad. Serve the remaining dressing on the side or save for making another salad.
