Recipe Tuesday- Thai Beef Salad

Happy Tuesday and I have a great dish for you today: Thai Beef Salad.

    • 1 cup loosely packed fresh cilantro leaves
    • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice (about 3 limes)
    • 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
    • 1 1/2 tablespoons Thai fish sauce
    • 1 tablespoon honey
    • 2 teaspoons grated orange rind
    • 2 garlic cloves, peeled
    • 4 (4-ounce) beef tenderloin steaks, trimmed
    • 1/2 small serrano chile
    • 2 teaspoons olive oil
    • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
    • 1/8 teaspoon salt
    • 2 cups shredded Napa cabbage
    • 1 cup grated, seeded, peeled cucumber
    • 1/3 cup thinly sliced green onions
    • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
    • 1 (12-ounce) package broccoli coleslaw
    • 1 (11-ounce) can mandarin oranges in light syrup, drained

Combine first 8 ingredients in a food processor; process until smooth.

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle steak evenly on both sides with pepper and salt. Add steak to pan; cook 4 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Remove steak from pan; let stand 5 minutes. Thinly slice steak.

Combine cabbage and the remaining ingredients in a large bowl. Drizzle slaw mixture with cilantro mixture; toss. Arrange 2 cups slaw mixture on each of 4 plates; top each serving with 3 ounces beef.

Yields 4 servings.
