Start by preparing the marinated beef filet: peel the garlic cloves and mince the yellow onions. In a bowl, mix all the ingredients of the marinade until the sugar is totally diluted. Finely mince the filet of beef and allow to marinate during one night.
Prepare the sauce: peel and chop the garlic cloves. Remove the seeds of the red pimento and mince finely. In a bowl, mix all the ingredients of the sauce until the palm sugar is totally diluted.
Prepare the rest of the ingredients: in a pot of boiling water, cook the rice vermicelli during 1 min. Drain the vermicelli and cool under running cold water, to stop the cooking.
Finely mince the lettuce, peel and grate the carrots while cutting up the cucumber in half-moons.
In a warm pan, pour a generous dash of peanut oil, cook the beef on a high flame for 5 min. Set it aside and place in a bowl or a hollow plate.
Serve it with vermicelli, grated carrots, cucumber, soya sprouts and minced lettuce. Sprinkle with mint leaves, coriander leaves and peanuts —generously season with sauce.
