Step 3: Place the tomato, capsicum, noodles, cabbage, thai leaves, coriander, mint, apple shallots and bean sprout in a bowl. Thinly slice steak across the grain and add to the salad. Drizzle with remaining dressing and gently toss to combine. Divide salad among bowls, Garnish with a sprinkle of sesame seeds, crushed peanuts and 1/8 lime to finish, serve immediately.
