1 lime

¼ cup (60 mL) peanut oil

¼ cup (60 mL) sweet chili sauce

2 tbsp (30 mL) ginger, grated or minced

4 tsp (20 mL) peanut butter

2 garlic cloves, minced  

2 tbsp (30 mL) fresh coriander, chopped

1 medium hot red chili, seeded and diced


8 oz (250 g) striploin steak  

salt and pepper, to taste

1 lb (500 g) mixed baby salad greens

1 yellow pepper, cut in julienne strips   

¼ cup (60 mL) peanuts, chopped

8 cherry tomatoes, quartered  

2 tbsp (30 mL) red wine vinegar



Finely grate peel of the lime into a bowl, along with lime juice. Add remaining marinade/dressing ingredients and whisk to combine. Set aside ¼ cup (60 mL) for salad dressing; cover and refrigerate.

In a shallow dish, pour remaining marinade/dressing over steak; turn steak to completely coat. Cover dish and marinate in refrigerator for at least 6 hours or overnight.


Preheat barbecue to medium-high heat. Remove steak from marinade and discard any leftover marinade. Season steak with salt and pepper. Place on greased grill and cook to your liking: 3 minutes per side for medium-rare, 5 minutes for medium and 6 to 7 minutes for medium-well to well done. Allow steak to rest for 5 minutes.

Assemble the remaining salad ingredients in a large bowl. Toss with reserved salad dressing and top with sliced steak.
