Asian Beef and Wild Rice Salad
Want to bring a fresh new taste to Strip Steak? Add Asian-style dressing to your beef along with fresh veggies with a wild rice salad on the side.
- 2 beef top loin (strip) steaks, cut 3/4 inch thick (about 10 ounces each)
- 2/3 cup light Asian-style dressing, divided
- 1-1/4 cups long-grain and wild rice blend (not quick-cooking)
- 2-1/2 cups boiling water
- 1 medium red bell pepper, cut into 3/4-inch pieces
- 1-1/4 cups hothouse cucumber, cut lengthwise in half, then crosswise into thin slices
- 1-1/4 cups frozen shelled edamame, thawed - One and one-third cups fresh sugar snap peas, cut diagonally in half, may be substituted for edamame.
- 1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions, divided
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
Place beef steaks and 1/3 cup dressing in food-safe plastic bag; turn steaks to coat. Close bag securely and marinate in refrigerator 15 minutes to 2 hours.
- Meanwhile, cook rice in boiling water according to package directions omitting butter and salt, if desired. Place in large bowl; cool.
Remove steaks from marinade; discard marinade. Place steaks on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, covered, 7 to 10 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, times remain the same) for medium rare (145°F) to medium (160°F) doneness, turning occasionally.
- Add bell pepper, cucumber, edamame, 2 tablespoons green onion, cilantro and remaining 1/3 cup dressing to rice; toss to combine. Season with salt, as desired.
- Carve steaks into slices. Place rice salad on serving plate. Arrange steak over rice; top with remaining 2 tablespoons green onion.
