  • 100g tamarind paste
  • Juice 2 limes

  1. Toss the steaks in the tamarind paste, lime juice, soy sauce and sugar, and put in the fridge.
  2. Heat the oil in a wok and fry the mushrooms, spring onions and sugar snaps for 3-4 mins, until just cooked; remove and set aside.
  3. Remove any excess sauce from the steaks and add them to the wok. Cook for 2-3 mins, then remove and set aside with the vegetables.
