Three is a crowd (OF DELICIOUSNESS)
Why are steaks so often packaged in groups of three? With just a happy couple and a happy couple of cats residing in this house such packaging leaves me with leftovers every time. Should you find yourself in a similar situation, the following recipe stretches a single steak into a delightful dinner for two.
Steak Salad with Ginger Dressing and Fresh Mango
6 oz tri-tip or steak, grilled
7 oz butter lettuce, rinsed and torn into pieces
1 medium mango, diced
Thinly slice beef across the grain. Toss lettuce with fresh herb dressing, begin with a small portion of dressing and slowly add more, tossing until each leaf is lightly coated. Divide salad evenly between plates and top each portion with beef and diced mango.
1 tsp freshly grated ginger
1/4 tsp lime zest
1/8 cup lime juice
1/8 cup orange juice
1/2 tsp sesame oil
1/2 cup oil (choose a neutral flavored one, like canola)
1 tsp fresh minced basil
1 tsp fresh minced cilantro
1 tsp fresh minced mint
Place all ingredients in an empty jar or other lidded container and shake until well mixed.
