I didn't quite make this recipe as described, as I had some leftover flank steak that had been marinated in red wine, olive oil, and garlic that needed to be used up, hence my going in search of an Asian steak salad recipe. Also, our supermarket was out of rice noodles, so had to use Chinese wheat noodles instead. Also didn't use the full head of cabbage, as all the ingredients would never have fit in my salad bowl! However, I did everything else exactly as specified, in particular the dressing, which was DELICIOUS! Just the right proportions of sweet, sour, salty, and hot. Hopefully will do the whole dish next time around. As we say here in Maine, some good!
