Grill or broil the steak medium rare. Remove, cool and cut into thin slices.

Combine the onions, tomatoes, cucumbers and garlic in a salad bowl. Add the cilantro, mint and scallions. Add beef slices.

Make the dressing; whisk together the fish sauce, lime juice and chili paste. Taste, and if acidic add small amounts of sugar. If it’s not hot enough, add chili paste. Pour the dressing over the salad and toss.
