In a small saucepan, mix together coconut milk, peanut butter, garlic, chilli sauce and soy sauce on low heat. Consistently stir until peanut butter has melted for about 5 mins. Increase heat to high and bring to boil. Remove from heat.
In a ceramic dish or shallow glass add 2 tablespoons of the peanut butter mixture and set aside to cool for 5 mins. Add beef and turn to coat.
On medium high, heat a greased barbecue grill or chargrill. Cook the beef for about 4 mins either side or until you are happy with it. Move to a plate and cover with foil for 5 mins to rest. Cut into thin slices.
Cook noodles following the instructions on the packet. Transfer to a large bowl and add oil, spring onion and half the coriander.
Add 2 tablespoons hot water to peanut butter mixture. Continue to stir until smooth.
Place a serving size of the noodle mixture and beef on plates and drizzle satay sauce over the top. Top with remaining coriander, peanuts and chilli. Serve hot.
