Place the lemongrass into a pestle and mortar, along with the garlic, chilli and ginger and bash to a pulp. Add the remaining marinade ingredients and mix well. Place the steaks into a dish along with the marinade and rub all over. Cover the dish in clingfilm and allow to marinade for a minimum of 1 hour, but ideally overnight.
Place a heavy based non-stick frying over a high heat, do not add any oil to the pan. Once the pan is smoking hot place the steaks in the pan and cook on both sides to your liking (we cooked to medium-rare). Once cooked take the steaks out of the pan and set aside on a board to rest for 5 minutes.
Meanwhile prepare the lettuce and remaining garnishes. Once the steak has rested, cut it into thin slices and place a couple of slices onto each lettuce leaf and sprinkle on the remaining garnishes. Serve immediately.
This recipe is very versatile and can serve 2 people as a main course with sides, 6 people as a starter or up to 8 people as a canapé.
