You Will Need...

  • Ingredients
  • marinade
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup tomato paste
  • 4 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 4 tbsp ginger, peeled and minced
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp sesame oil (toasted preferred)
  • 1 tbsp ground chili paste (Sambal Oelek)
  • 1 – 2 lbs of your favorite steak
  • dressing
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 1/2 cup mayonaise
  • 1 tsp ground chili paste
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 3 tbsp hot water
  • 2 tbsp lime juice
  • salad
  • 6 cups Spring Mix greens
  • 2 cups of stir fry noodles (cooked, coated with some olive oil & cooled)
  • 2 carrots, julienned
  • 1 cup sugar snap peas, halved
  • 1 red pepped, julienned
  • 1/3 cup unsalted peanuts, toasted
  • drizzle
  • 1/4 cup sweet chili sauce
  • 1 tbsp hoisin sauce
  • 1 tsp toasted sesame oil

Step by Step Instructions

  • Step 1

    Combine all of the marinade ingredients in a glass dish, coat steak well, cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

  • Step 2

    Grill steak for about 5-6 minutes per side (longer if you prefer your steak medium to well done). After letting it rest for 5-10 minutes, cut the steak into strips and then into bite sized pieces.

    While your steak is cooking, mix the dressing ingredients in a blender until smooth. You can also whisk together the ingredients for the drizzle. *I tend to prepare the dressing and drizzle before hand if we are preparing this for company, so that I have less to do once our guests arrive.*

  • Step 3

    To assemble the salad, toss the greens with the dressing and place some noodles on top (approximately 1/2 cup). Top with steak, carrots, sugar snap peas, red peppers and peanuts and finish with a few teaspoons of the drizzle.
