east meets west salad


  • 2 beef shoulder center (ranch) steaks, cut 1 inch thick (about 8 oz each)
  • 3/4 cup prepared reduced-fat or regular Asian-style dressing
  • 1 pound coleslaw mix (pre-packaged)
  • 1 cup snow peas, trimmed, cut diagonally in half or 3/4 cup frozen shelled deamame, defrosted
  • 1/4 cup hone-roasted peanuts, chopped or slivered toasted almonds


Place beef steaks and 1/4 cup dressing in food-safe plastic bag; turn steaks to coat. Close bag securely and marinate in refrigerator 15 minutes to 2 hours.

Remove steaks from marinade; discard marinade. Place steaks on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, covered, 11 to 14 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, 12 to 16 minutes) for medium rare (145°F) to medium (160°F) doneness, turning occasionally.

Carve steaks into thin slices; season with salt and pepper, as desired. Toss coleslaw mix, snow peas and peanuts with remaining 1/2 cup dressing in large bowl until well coated. Add beef; toss to combine.
