ginger steak salad

09 Aug

We just got back from camping in the Olympic National Forest.  After three days of eating canned and dehydrated foods, I was craving steak and my husband was craving fresh produce.  This recipe fit the bill and made us both very happy!

The dressing is delicious!  A little sweetness from the sugar, tang from the lime juice, spice from the jalapeno.  Add more or less jalapeno to suit your taste.  I keep my ginger root in the freezer.  It can last for months without spoiling and it is easy to grate with a microplane zester/grater.

Ginger Steak Salad

Marinade Ingredients:

  • 2 Tbsp. soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp. sherry
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp. brown sugar
  • 1 rib-eye or sirloin steak

For Salad Dressing:

  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp. soy sauce
  • 2 Tbsp. white sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. lime juice
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely diced
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh ginger, finely minced
  • 1/4 jalapeno, seeded and diced

Salad Ingredients:

  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • cherry tomatoes, halved
  • salad greens
  • yellow pepper, diced
  • avocado, diced

Combine marinade ingredients in a ziploc bag.  Place whole steak into bag and marinate for 30 minutes to 2 hours.

Combine salad dressing ingredients and set aside.

Cook steak on a skillet over high heat or on the bbq until done to your liking.  Allow to rest for 10 minutes.  Slice thinly.

Toss salad greens with 3/4 dressing.  Place greens on a plate and top with tomatoes, yellow pepper and avocado.  Place steak slices on top.  Sprinkle with green onions and pour remaining dressing over top.
