3 tbsp rice vinegar

2 tbsp soy sauce

1 tsp honey

1 lime, juiced

1/2" fresh ginger, finely minced

1 tsp sesame oil

2 cloves garlic, finely minced

1/2 tsp red chili flakes, optional

salt & pepper


Steak Marinade:

1/3 c. soy sauce

3 tbsp. sesame oil

1 tbsp. fish sauce

2 limes, juiced

1 tbsp. brown sugar

1/4 c. fresh cilantro, roughly chopped

1/2 red onion, sliced

2 cloves garlic, smashed & sliced

1" fresh ginger, julienned

1/2 tsp red pepper flakes


2 lbs. flank steak

spring lettuce mix

2 persian cucumbers, halved & sliced thinly

2 c. cherry tomatoes, halved

1/2 red onion, julienne

a bundle of mint, destemmed

a bundle of cilantro, destemmed

1/2 c. peanuts, crushed

a package of vermicelli noodles, prepared per package instructions


Instructions

1) Marinate the steak! In a small bowl whisk together soy sauce, sesame oil, lime juice, and brown sugar. In a resealable container or ziploc bag, add the flank steak, cilantro, red onion, garlic, ginger, and red pepper flakes. Pour your soy sesame blend into your container with the flank steak. Seal it well and give it a good shake to make sure everything is evenly distributed around. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours before cooking.

2) Create your dressing. In a mason jar, add peanut butter, rice vinegar, soy sauce, honey, lime juice, ginger, sesame oil, garlic, chili flakes, salt, and pepper. Give it a good strong shake until fully combined and smooth. If necessary, add spoonfuls of water to get the consistency you like. Set aside.

3) Cook your steak. Preferred method of cooking is over a grill for 3-4 minutes* per side, however, cooking in a skillet works just as well. Make sure to only cook the steak without any marinade ingredients.

4) Serve and enjoy! In a bowl add a handful of vermecelli noodles, a handful of lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber, fresh mint leaves, fresh cilantro leaves, thinly sliced steak, a drizzle of the homemade dressing, top with crushed peanuts.


*Adjust cooking time accordingly to size of the flank steak(s).
