Wash the steaks and pat dry on paper towels. Mix the peppercorns with the five spice and press onto all sides of the steak. Cook on a grill pan or under a broiler for 2-3 minutes each side, or until cooked to your liking.
Meanwhile mix the bean sprouts, half the ginger, the shallots, and bell pepper together and divide between 4 plates. Mix the remaining ginger, soy sauce, chilies, lemongrass, and oils together.
Slice the beef and arrange on the vegetables. Drizzle with the dressing and serve immediately.
