Preheat the oven to 240°C/220°C fan-forced. Cut the kumara and carrot (both unpeeled) into 2cm chunks. Place the veggies on an oven tray lined with baking paper. Drizzle with olive oil, season with salt and pepper and toss to coat. Spread out in a single layer and roast until tender, 25-30 minutes. Set aside to cool slightly. TIP: Cut the veggies to size so they cook in time.
While the veggies are roasting, roughly chop the tomato. In a large bowl, combine the mixed salad leaves and tomato. Set aside.
Finely grate the ginger and garlic. Heat a large frying pan over a medium-high heat with olive oil (1 tbs for 2 people / 2 tbs for 4 people), the ginger and garlic. Cook until fragrant, 1 minute. Transfer to a small bowl. Add the soy sauce, brown sugar and the rice wine vinegar to the ginger mixture and mix well to combine. Set aside.
When the kumara has 5 minutes cook time remaining, combine the Thai seven spice blend and a generous drizzle of olive oil in a medium bowl. Season with salt and pepper, then add the beef strips and toss to coat. Return the frying pan to a high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Cook the beef strips, in batches, tossing, until browned, 2 minutes. Transfer to a bowl.
Add the roasted veggies to the mixed salad along with the beef strips and ginger-soy dressing. Toss to combine. Season with salt and pepper.
Roughly chop the coriander. Divide the Asian beef salad between plates. Top with the crushed peanuts (see ingredients) and garnish with the coriander.
