For the sauce:
2 Tablespoons of Hoisin Sauce (This sauce can be found at Chinese stores)
2 Tablespoons of Soy Sauce
2 Tablespoons of Sesame Oil ( You can add 4 if you like juicy salad, but I don't like too oily)
Raw Sesame Seeds
Cook in a low - medium heat until lightly brown (It smells greater if you cook fresh every time use)
1 Tablespoon of Honey
Lime - Juice into a small bowl
I used 2 1/2 tablespoons, if you like a bit sour then add more but should not be more than 3 1/2 tablespoons!
Chillies - wash
Chopped. Can be used 1/2 tablespoon, add more if you like something more exciting
Combine hoisin sauce, soy sauce, sesame oil, roasted sesame seeds, honey, lime juiced, chopped chillies together
Mix all the ingredients well
Cherry Tomatoes - wash, length into half or quarter
Cucumbers - wash, thinly sliced
Red Onion - peeled, thinly sliced
Coriander Leaves - wash, chopped (just leaves)
Basil Leaves - leaves picked, wash
Place sliced, roasted beef in a large bowl
Add sliced cucumbers,

and 9 tablespoons of mixed sauces, and remaining salad ingredients and toss them together.
Arrange the salad in piles on four plates and drizzle with the remaining sauce.
Hoisin Sauce - A condiment used in Chinese cooking made from fermented soy beans. It is reddish brown and both sweet and spicy. Typical ingredients include soybean paste, sugar, garlic and vinegar. Use as a glaze for roasted meats, Peking Duck, marinades and stir-fry.
Sesame Oil - Sesame oil is made with sesame seeds which have been roasted which produces a very potent, flavorful oil. Sesame oil is used in many Asian recipes for salad dressings, marinades and numerous other uses. This oil has a low smoke point so it is not appropriate for frying.
