Ingredients
2 green onions, chopped
1 lemon grass, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 cup chopped fresh mint leaves
1 cup limejuice
1/3 cup fish sauce
1 tbsp. sweet chili sauce
1/2 cup white sugar
1 1/2 lb. (1 inch thick) steak fillet
1 head leaf lettuce - washed, dried and torn into bite-sized pieces
1/2 English cucumber, diced
1 pt. cherry tomatoes

Methods/steps
In a large bowl, stir together the green onions, lemon grass, cilantro, mint leaves, limejuice, fish sauce, chili sauce, and sugar until well combined and the sugar is dissolved. Adjust the flavor, by adding more sugar and/or fish sauce. Set aside. Cook the steak over high heat on a preheated grill for approximately 4-6 minutes on each side, until it is cooked medium. Do not overcook the meat! Remove from heat and slice into thin strips. Add the meat and its juices to the sauce and refrigerate, tightly covered, for at least 3 hours. Tear the lettuce into bite size pieces and place in a salad bowl. Arrange the cucumber on top of the lettuce, and then pour the meat and sauce over them; top with the cherry tomatoes and garnish with fresh cilantro leaves.
