Seared beef and bean sprouts in spicy lime dressing

From Cookipedia

This recipe requires preparation in advance!

This dish is similar to an Indo-Chinese dish, Goi Bo and variation of it that are found in Cambodia, Thailand and Laos. Because the beef is only cooked for a short time, it's worth using high quality beef such as fillet for this dish.

Chef's notes

I also added some raw sliced button mushrooms to the bean sprouts because I happened to have some left over.
