Ingredients
  • 8 oz pkg rice vermicelli noodles
  • ¼ cup lime juice
  • 3 Tbsp water
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 2 tsp Sriracha sauce or other GF hot sauce
  • 1 tsp GF fish sauce
  • 1 English cucumber, halved and thinly sliced
  • 1 red onion, thinly sliced
  • ½ cup red pepper, finely chopped
  • ½ cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1 1b flank steak
Instructions
  1. Cook noodles according to package instructions. Drain, rinse and set aside to cool.
  2. In a bowl whisk together lime juice, water, sugar, hot and fish sauce. Add cucumber, onion, peppers, and noodles and allow to marinate while making steak.
  3. Cook steak according to your likeness, and allow to rest for 10 minutes to allow the juices to redistribute back into the meat. Then slice thinly across the grain. This makes the pieces fall-apart tender to eat.

    Hi
    I'm crazy allergic to msg and other "free" glutamates. The fish sauce has msg in it--any suggestions for a substitution?

      I would replace it with some soy sauce...although if you can't find any MSG free soy sauce, just omit it completely.

    Have you ever tried doing a warm salad with this. How did it turn out. It looks very appetizing.

      In the recipe, the steak is hot off the grill, sliced and placed over everything - and tastes amazing in this cold/hot combination! It would be just as great as a completely cold salad too, to take as a picnic lunch. Hope you like it as much as I do 🙂
