Asian Skirt Steak Salad

So I think this might be the second recipe that I have posted that BD made and not yours truly.
Anyway, in our house I do about 90% of the cooking. Why? Because I am the woman and he is my man. I’m kidding, totally not true. I don’t know why really. Maybe its because I’m kind of a control freak… or maybe because I secretly think I am better than he is, but know in my heart I could NEVER cook professionally, so then he wins that argument again. (BD has professional experience while I do not. At all. Shocking, I know.) BD usually gets to cook when I say: I’m tired and don’t feel like cooking, or I have too much school work to do so you get to cook tonight. Its my gift to him really.

The problem with posting BD’s “recipes” is that he doesn’t write it down. So I begged him to write this one down for me. Still he didn’t write it all down and I’ve been hounding him for the rest of it. I finally got it. Please note that he adapted the marinade from And can I just say that I love looking at company websites for recipes? So many gems there.

Asian Steak Salad
*Serves 2

- ¼ cup soy sauce
- ¼ plum sauce
- 1/4 pineapple juice
- ¼ ketchup
- 1/4 cup of scallions plus two tablespoons
- 1 tablespoon dried cilantro (you can use fresh just use double the amount)
- 1 tablespoon fresh grated ginger
- 1 tablespoon garlic
- ½ of a red bell pepper, sliced
- ½ of a red onion, sliced
- 1 cup bean sprouts
- 1 pound of skirt steak
- 6oz bag of Green Garden Salad (the kind with lettuce, carrots, and red cabbage or radicchio)
- Asian Toasted Sesame Dressing
- Chow mien noodles

1. Combine the following ingredients in a zip lock bag:
- ¼ cup soy sauce
- ¼ plum sauce
- ¼ ketchup
- 1/3 cup of scallions
- 1 tablespoon dried cilantro (you can use fresh just use double the amount)
- 1 tablespoon fresh grated ginger
- 1 tablespoon garlic

Seal bag tightly and shake to incorporate. Next add steak and marinate in refrigerator for at least 6 hours.

2. Once steak is ready, preheat your grill on high. When grill is hot, cook on both sides for about 4 minutes each for medium steak. Remove from heat and allow to rest for about 5-10 minutes.

3. While steak is grilling and resting, add lettuce, peppers, onions, and sprouts to a large bowl and toss to incorporate. *If you choose you can dress the salad now or serve it on the side.

4. After steak has rested, slice thinly on a bias going against the grain. Serve over the salad.

5. Top salad with remaining scallions and chow mien noodles on top.
