Thai Steak Salad Recipe

Thai Steak Salad Recipe

Thai food is popular in our household. So my husband and I developed this fresh, fuss-free alternative to a meat and potatoes dinner. The spicy sweet dressing is incredible!—Radelle Knappenberger, Oviedo, FL
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Cook: 15 min. YIELD:2 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
  • 1 small garlic clove, minced
  • Dash salt
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 boneless beef top loin steak (8 ounces)
  • 4 cups torn romaine
  • 2 tablespoons salted peanuts
  • 2 tablespoons fresh basil leaves, chopped

Directions

  • 1. For dressing, in a small bowl, combine the lime juice, soy sauce, honey, vinegar, pepper sauce, garlic and salt. Whisk in 1 tablespoon oil; set aside.
  • 2. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook steak in remaining oil for 6-8 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°). Remove from the pan and let stand for 5 minutes.
  • 3. Divide romaine between two plates. Slice beef; arrange over romaine. Sprinkle with peanuts and basil; drizzle with dressing. Yield: 2 servings.
