Before you start this recipe, put the vegetable oil in a deep pan and turn on the heat to warm up the oil. Meanwhile, start preparing the crispy beef. In a bowl, mix the eggs, corn flour and salt together to a smooth batter, and then add in the beef strips. Turn the beef strips around in the batter till they are well coated all over. Place the battered beef strips into the hot oil, one by one, till golden brown. Remove them from the hot oil with a slotted spoon and place onto kitchen towel to remove any excess oil. Next, start to prepare the salad. Separate the Chinese lettuce leaves and place into a large bowl. Slice the spring onions diagonally, and use a parmesan shaver to cut the carrot and cucumber into thin slices. Add them to the Chinese lettuce leaves, along with some coriander and basil leaves. Make the salad dressing by mixing together the soy sauce, rice vinegar, lime juice, chopped chilli and fresh seasoning to taste. Add this dressing to the salad and mix everything together. Serve the salad into 2 deep pasta plates. Finally, mix the cooked beef strips with the sweet chilli sauce, and serve the crispy chilli beef on top of the salad. Sprinkle with the toasted sesame seeds and serve.
