Beverage match – a beer is good with this, and my current favourite is Citizen Beer’s Pilsner.

Remove Silver Fern Farms Venison Minute Steaks from the fridge and packaging, to bloom for 10 minutes at room temperature.

Brush the venison on both sides with the oil and leave for 5 minutes.

Peel and thinly slice the onion length ways. Rub the sliced onion with ½ tsp salt for 15 seconds – then rinse the salt off and drain.

Finely grate ½ tsp of lime zest, and juice it. Mix the lime zest, juice and palm sugar in with the onion and leave for a few minutes.

Add the chilli, ginger, fish sauce, apple, mint and coriander stalks and toss together.

Place a pan on high heat. When the pan is nice and hot, place the steaks in, not overlapping and cook until coloured – around 40 seconds.

Turn them over and cook another 15 seconds – 1 minute in total is all they need
Remove Venison Minute Steaks from pan and transfer to plate, cover loosely with foil and allow to rest for 5 minutes. 

Cut the cos lettuce lengthways into 6 – 8 wedges, toss with tomatoes and divide amongst your plates. Dollop the yoghurt on.

Slice the venison into strips, sprinkle with a little salt and lay over the lettuce.

Finish with the apple salad, peanuts and coriander leaves.
