Ingredients for seared beef and bean sprouts in a spicy lime dressing

This dish is similar to an Indo-Chinese dish, Goi Bo and variation of it that are found in Cambodia, Thailand and Laos. Because the beef is only cooked for a short time, it's worth using high quality beef such as fillet for this dish.

The marinade

Chef's notes

I also added some raw sliced button mushrooms to the bean sprouts because I happened to have some left over.
