Food & Wine


The aroma of steak, chicken, pork and burgers cooking on a grill is a favorite this time of year. It's time to get your grill and favorite recipes out of storage. Here's a good dish for tonight. It's adapted from a recipe at the Pioneer Woman blog:


Steak Marinade:

2 tablespoons soy sauce

1 tablespoon sherry

2 minced garlic cloves

2 teaspoons brown sugar

1 rib-eye, strip, or sirloin steak (about 1 lb.)

Salad Dressing:

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 tablespoons soy sauce

2 tablespoons white sugar

1 tablespoon lime juice

2 garlic cloves, finely diced

1 generous tablespoon fresh ginger, minced

½jalapeno, seeded and diced

8 oz. salad greens

1 bunch green onions, chopped

Cherry tomatoes (optional)

Combine steak marinade ingredients in a plastic storage bag. Mix and place steak into bag. Marinate for 30 minutes to 2 hours.

Combine salad dressing ingredients.

When steak is finished marinating, heat the grill to medium-high. Cook steak about 3 minutes per side for medium rare. Cool slightly, then cut steak against the grain into thin slices.

Toss salad greens in three-fourths of the salad dressing. Mound tossed salad on a platter (or on individual plates), then place sliced steak on top of salad. Pour remaining salad dressing over the top.

Sprinkle green onions over the salad, and add cherry tomatoes if desired. Makes 4 servings.
