Thai Steak Salad (Keto)

I woke up particularly well this morning. Mr Higgins (one of our pooches) snuggled right up against me the entire night, and I woke up with his little nose breathing small amounts of snot onto my cheek: bliss. It certainly beats one Winter morning last year while still half asleep, in an effort to cover my shoulders with the duvet, my hand slipped and I punched myself in the face. Yeah, I would take a bit of Scottish Terrier snot any day. Off topic, apologies… Having been to Thailand twice in my travels, I think its fair to say how incredible and fresh the flavours are, and there is a strong Asian influence in this steak salad. It is also 100% keto, fast, simple and satisfying. If you like the idea of combining steak with Asian  flavours, you may also like my Low-carb Pho Bo.

Per serving

Calories: 338kcal | Carbohydrates: 4.7g | Protein: 41g | Fat: 17g


  • 2 rump steaks, (approx. 130g / 4.5oz each)
  • 2 tsp lard
  • 1/2 small red onion, peeled and finely sliced
  • 1 cucumber, shaved into ribbons
  • 2 spring onions, sliced
  • 1/2 lemongrass stalk, finely minced
  • 1 lime, juice of
  • 1 TB fish sauce
  • 1 small Thai red chili, finely sliced
  • small handful mint
  • small handful coriander


  • Start by patting your steak dry using kitchen paper. Season the steak on both sides with a little salt.
  • Heat the lard in a non-stick pan on high, and grill the steaks until done to your liking. Remove from the heat and set aside to rest.
  • In the meantime, combine all the remaining ingredients in a bowl and leave to sit for a few minutes. It is a good idea to place it all in a strainer for a minute to drain all the juices that will have collected at the bottom. If you skip this part – you will know about it.
  • Divide the salad between two bowls. Slice the steak on the diagonal into several bite size pieces and serve on top of the salad.

Making ribbons from the cucumber can be done by halving the cucumber, then using a vegetable peeler along the length of each piece.

A new-and-improved version of this delicious recipe features in my cookbook KETO KITCHEN.
