Lemongrass vermicelli beef salad

Low Cholesterol Living

This dish is just yum. You’ll want to make it again and again and again.

The herbs bring a wonderful freshness, the chilli a little kick, and the peanuts a satisfying crunch. For this dish, I like to select the leanest cut of beef I can find. Usually this is beef fillet. It’s a little pricier, but it helps to cut down the fat content.
