Vietnamese Steak Salad

It’s officially summer so it’s nice to take a break from heavy foods and go for something lighter and refreshing. So here’s a super easy, flavorful and refreshing recipe to add to your summer pool party that will make you stand out! Tender steak marinated in Vietnamese flavors, crunchy cucumber and bright and sweet tomatoes all come together along with thin glass noodles.


1 tbsp soy sauce

2 tbsp fish sauce

1 tbsp rice vinegar

2 tbsp brown sugar

1 large lime

2 medium size tomatoes (quartered)

1 large cucumber (peeled and cut into bite size pieces.)

1 handful of fresh mint


1 medium red cerrano pepper (sliced thin)

1 pack of glass noodles

*Steak Marinade

1 tbsp soy sauce

1 tbsp fish sauce

1 tbsp rice vinegar

1 tbsp brown sugar


Grill the marinated steaks to your meat temperature preference. I prefer medium well for this particular recipe.

Put them aside to cool off.

Cook glass noodles per packaging instructions. Drains and place in refrigerator to cool.

In a large bowl mix soy sauce, fish sauce, rice vinegar, brown sugar and lime juice. Whisk all ingredients.

Once steak has cooled off cut thin slices and add to bowl.

Add cucumber, tomatoes and noodles, sliced pepper and fresh mint.

Mix until all ingredients combined evenly.

Serve chilled and enjoy!
