Look for prewashed packages of Asian-style salad mixes at your supermarket - their peppery, exotic character is great with this full-flavored steak and dressing. Look for fiber- and protein-rich edamame (green soybeans) in the frozen vegetables section of your supermarket. The roasted-nut and citrus flavors of the easy dressing go well with Asian-style salads or meals; try drizzling it on grilled shrimp or chicken breast, too.

Nice combination of veggies and steak. DH grilled the steak rather searing in the pan. I'd use less cilantro next time (even though I love it usually) and add sliced mushrooms. I added some sliced sweet onion. Will make again for sure and try some of the variations. Thanks Flo! made for Variety is the Spice of Live 2013
