Soy and ginger marinated steak salad

Steak salads are almost perfect as a healthy weeknight supper. Making sure there’s enough steak to make this salad eat like a meal is important, so generally have at least a half a pound of meat per adult. If you have the time, try letting this chopped steak sit in the marinade overnight—the extra time makes a huge difference in the final flavor.


  • 2 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp grated ginger
  • 1 Tbsp grated garlic
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 2 tsp toasted sesame oil, divided
  • 1 inside round roast steak (about 1 lb), coarsely chopped
  • 1 head romaine lettuce, chopped
  • 1 lime, quartered
  • Chopped cilantro, to garnish
  • Chopped scallions, to garnish
  • Sesame seeds, to garnish
  • Kewpie mayo, to garnish


  1. In a bowl, combine soy sauce, ginger, garlic, honey and 1 tsp of toasted sesame oil. Mix until combined. Toss chopped steak in the marinade and let sit at least 15 minutes, but ideally overnight.
  2. In a large skillet, heat remaining sesame oil over high heat until smoking, then add the marinated steak. Cook, tossing often until the steak reaches desired doneness, about 5 minutes for medium rare. Remove from the skillet and let rest 5 minutes.
  3. Divide chopped lettuce between two plates. Top each plate with steak and any accumulated juices. Squeeze ¼ lime over each plate, then top steak with chopped cilantro, scallions, and sesame seeds. Drizzle with mayo and serve each salad with remaining lime wedge.
