Nici Wickes’ Quick & Easy Thai Roast Beef

serving size icon
Serves 4


  • 1 Tbs palm sugar, grated (or brown sugar)


Beef Paste

  • 1 cup chopped pineapple, tinned or fresh
  • lemon grass
  • 1 thumb-sized piece fresh ginger
  • 1 red chilli
  • Wine Match: Selaks Pinot Gris Reserve
  • 1 Tbs palm sugar, grated (or brown sugar)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp sesame oil


  • 800g - 1kg piece of rump steak
  • 1 Tbs rice bran oil


  • 100g rice noodles
  • ½ cup peanuts, lightly toasted and roughly chopped
  • 2 red chillies – deseeded, finely chopped
  • 1 small handful of mint, roughly chopped
  • 1 small handful fresh coriander (stalks and leaves) roughly chopped
  • limes to garnish

Rice Noodles Dressing

  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 Tbs rice wine vinegar
  • 2 Tbs lime juice
  • 1 Tbs grated palm sugar



Take your beef out of the fridge 30 minutes before you’re ready to cook it – it cooks better from room temperature.

Preheat the oven to 220 C.

Make the paste by putting all of the ingredients (except the beef and rice bran oil obviously!) into a food processor, or mortar and pestle, and process until it forms a chunky paste.

Pat the beef completely dry using paper towels, then smear the paste over the surface.

Heat the rice bran oil in an oven proof pan on the stove top. Cook the beef on one side until brown, then complete the cooking by transferring the pan to the hot oven for 20-30 minutes, which will cook it to medium rare. To test, check it after 15-20 minutes by gently poking it – the meat should feel springy but firm, kind of like when you poke your chin (as opposed to the softness of your cheek).

When the beef is cooked to your liking, remove the pan from the oven and transfer the beef to a board to rest for 10-15 minutes. Cover it with a layer of tinfoil and a tea towel to keep it warm. While the beef rests you can make the noodle salad. When ready to serve, slice beef thinly.


Cook the rice noodles by dropping into a pot of boiling salted water. Cook for 3 minutes or until noodles are soft but not soggy. Drain well.

Whisk the dressing ingredients together. Toss noodles in dressing until well coated. Add crushed peanuts, chopped chilli and fresh herbs. Toss again and serve up in small bowls, each with a wedge of lime and slices of the beef.
