Grilled Thai Beef Salad

Grilled Thai Beef Salad


1 pound top-round London broil or flank steak, 1 to 1 1/2 inches thick
3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
3 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
3 tablespoons canola oil
2 tablespoons firmly packed dark brown sugar
1 clove garlic, minced (about 1 teaspoon)
1 1/2 teaspoons peeled and minced fresh ginger
1 1/4 teaspoons red curry paste or chili-garlic sauce
Cooking spray
1/2 head red-leaf lettuce, torn (about 5 cups lightly packed)
3 shallots, thinly sliced (about 1/2 cup)
1/2 cup coarsely chopped fresh cilantro leaves
1 cup fresh basil leaves, sliced into ribbons


Rinse the meat and pat dry and place in a sealable plastic bag or small glass dish. In a medium bowl, combine 1 tablespoon of the lime juice, the soy sauce, oil, brown sugar, garlic, ginger, and red curry paste. Pour half the mixture into the bag with the meat. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons lime juice to the bag. Seal tightly and marinate the meat in refrigerator at least 4 hours or overnight, turning occasionally. Reserve the rest of the mixture to dress the salad.

Coat your grill grate or a grill pan with cooking spray and preheat over medium-high heat until hot. Grill the steak until medium-rare, about 5 minutes per side, or to your desired degree of doneness Let it rest until room temperature for 5 minutes, then slice thinly against the grain.

Combine the lettuce, shallots (reserving a few slices for garnish), cilantro, basil, and beef in a large salad bowl,. Add the reserved dressing and toss to coat. Divide the salad among 4 plates and garnish with the sliced shallots.
