Season the sirloin steaks with salt and pepper.
Heat a large grill pan/skillet over high heat until hot.
Cook the sirloin steaks to your liking. Turn each steak once using a tong. Remove the steaks from the skillet, and let it rest for about 5 minutes before serving.
To make the beef salad: Slice the steak into thin strips. In a medium or large mixing bowl, add some lemongrass, shallots, mint leaves, scallions, coriander, cucumber, tomatoes, and the grilled beef. Mix in a couple tablespoon of the dressing, toss and mix well. Add some lettuce leaves on a serving plate, the beef mixture, peanuts, and garnish with mint leaves and kaffir lime leaves. Spoon some of the dressing, if desired. Serve immediately.
