To grill beef

  3. Grill for 3 minutes then turn over and grill for a further 3 minutes for medium-rare beef.
  4. Remove from the grill and place on a plate.
  5. Cover loosely with foil and leave to rest and cool.

To make dipping sauce

  1. Combine all the ingredients in a bowl.
  2. Cover and set aside to allow the flavours to mingle.

To make rolls

  1. Cut steaks across the grain into thin slices. To assemble – dip 1 sheet of rice paper into a bowl of warm water, removing it when soft – after about 1 minute. Place on a clean, dry tea towel on the bench. The rice paper will be pliable and easy to roll.
  2. Place a coriander and mint leaf on the rice paper then a slice of steak followed by a tablespoon of filling on top (be careful not to overfill). Turn in the sides and carefully roll up into a cigar shape, making sure that the coriander and mint leaves are visible.

To serve

  1. Place on a serving plate covering with damp kitchen paper as you go, along with a small bowl of the dipping sauce. Repeat the assembly process to make more rolls.
