ginger-maple steak with napa cabbage & grilled onions


  • 2 beef Strip Steaks Boneless, cut 1-inch thick (about 10 ounces each)
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 large red onion, cut into 1/2 inch thick slices
  • 4 cups thinly sliced Napa cabbage
  • 1/2 cup reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons minced fresh garlic
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons chile-garlic paste


  1. Whisk marinade ingredients in medium bowl. Place beef steaks and 1/2 cup marinade in food-safe plastic bag; turn steaks to coat. Close bag securely and marinate in refrigerator 15 minutes to 2 hours. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade for dressing.
  2. Remove steaks from marinade; discard marinade. Sprinkle steaks with pepper. Place steaks on grid over medium, ash-covered coals; arrange onion around steaks. Grill steaks, covered, 11 to 14 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, 11 to 15 minutes) for medium rare (145°F) to medium (160°F) doneness, turning occasionally. Grill onions 15 to 20 minutes or until tender, turning occasionally.
  3. Carve steaks into slices. Cut onion slices into quarters. Toss cabbage, onion and 2 tablespoons reserved dressing in large bowl. Arrange beef on cabbage mixture. Drizzle with some of remaining dressing. Pass remaining dressing.
