Description

I absolutely love steak salads, pretty much in any form. Here’s an Asian-inspired creation I whipped up using things I had in my pantry and fridge. It was so delicious, I wound up pretty much eating myself silly.

Ingredients

  • MARINADE INGREDIENTS:
  • 2 Tablespoons Soy Sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon Sherry
  • 2 cloves Garlic, Minced
  • 2 teaspoons Brown Sugar
  • 1 whole Rib-eye, Strip, Or Sirloin Steak
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • _____
  • FOR SALAD DRESSING:
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 2 Tablespoons Soy Sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons White Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon Lime Juice
  • 2 cloves Garlic, Finely Diced
  • 1 Tablespoon Fresh Ginger, Minced
  • ½ whole Jalapeno, Seeded And Diced
  • _____
  • SALAD INGREDIENTS:
  • 2 whole Green Onions
  • 8 ounces, weight Salad Greens (baby Lettuce, Endive, Radiccio, Etc.)

Preparation

Combine steak marinade ingredients in a Ziploc bag. Mix and place steak into bag. Marinate for 30 minutes to 2 hours.

Combine salad dressing ingredients and slice green onion.

When steak is finished marinating, add 2 tablespoons olive oil to a hot skillet. Cook steak about 1 1/2 minutes per side, or until medium rare. Remove from skillet and keep on a plate, allowing to cool slightly.

Toss salad greens in 3/4 of the salad dressing. Place steak on cutting board and slice thinly, then pour juices from the plate over the top. Mound tossed salad on a platter, then place sliced steak on top of salad. Pour remaining salad dressing over the top. Sprinkle green onions over the salad, and add cherry tomatoes if that makes your skirt fly up.

I use half the sugar in the dressing and red wine instead of sherry in the marinade. It’s been a ‘go to’ since the first time I made it- we all love it!

Another great meal and one amazed hubby (who doesn’t particularly care for beef)….. GREAT salad dressing. Am eating the leftovers tomorrow for lunch! :)

Oh, and look up Ree’s recipe for “The Bread”. PERFECT with this dish.

My 11 year old declared this the best salad I’ve ever made, and my 6 year old asked for seconds. We love Asian flavors, but were tired of the same old chicken salads. Definitely a hit all around.

Yummy! Almost everyone ate it except for one, but he hardly eats anything so he doesn’t count . . . ;)

This has become one of my favorites. The dressing makes plenty to use the next day on whatever greens are left after dinner the night before. Even my husband who hates meat on greens will eat this one but I tend to save it for when I’m flying solo!
