World Cup Kitchen today is Japanese: Seared Beef Sashimi and a crisp vegetable salad with ginger and coriander served with an accompanying Gyoza Sauce

I love this fresh and colourful salad that is perfect for a weekend lunch or a light dinner. The crispness and spiciness of the vegetables compliments the peppery beef and is all served with a chilli and soy sauce.

First up I will explain how to make a very tasty Gyoza Sauce

1 garlic clove – finely chopped
½ red chilli – finely chopped
15g sugar
50ml of red wine vinegar
125 ml of light soy sauce
½ tbsp of sesame sauce

- Dissolve the sugar and vinegar in a saucepan over a low heat

- In a pestle and mortar mash up your garlic and chilli in a little salt

- Combine all ingredients together and store in a sealed container

 - The above sauce will keep for several weeks in the fridge
