1 Combine dressing/marinade ingredients in a small bowl. Cut the beef into thin strips and place in a medium bowl. Pour half the dressing over the beef and marinate for at least 30 minutes (or vernight) in the fridge.
2 Place the potatoes in a medium saucepan, cover with water and boil until tender (test with a knife). While the potatoes are cooking toss salad ingredients into a large bowl.
3 Heat a large non-stick frying pan over a medium heat. Add the peanuts and honey and toss until the peanuts are golden (be careful not to burn them). Remove from the pan and set aside.
4 Using the same pan, cook the beef to your liking, remove from the heat and let it rest for a few minutes. Add the potatoes to the salad and serve with the beef, a sprinkle of peanuts and some extra Thai dressing.
