Cooking is one of my favorite hobbies—especially when it comes to experimenting with fresh ingredients like these. This meaty salad is wonderful at the start of asparagus season. —Tamara Steeb, Issaquah, Washington

Ingredients

  • 1 beef top round steak (1 pound)
  • 4 cups cut fresh asparagus (2-inch)
  • 3 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated gingerroot
  • Sesame seeds
  • Lettuce leaves, julienned carrot and radishes, cilantro leaves and lime wedges, optional

Directions

Preheat broiler. Place steak on a broiler pan. Broil 2-3 in. from heat until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 145°), 6-7 minutes per side. Let stand 5 minutes before slicing.
In a large saucepan, bring 1/2 in. water to a boil. Add asparagus; cook, uncovered, just until crisp-tender, 3-5 minutes. Drain and cool.
Mix soy sauce, sesame oil, vinegar and ginger; toss with beef and asparagus. Sprinkle with sesame seeds. If desired, serve over lettuce with carrot, radishes, cilantro and lime wedges. Yield: 6 servings.
