Take-out sushi is the ideal starter for this meal, and purchased sesame noodles
sprinkled with chopped peanuts go perfectly with the main course. Serving
mini-scoops of refreshing fruit sorbets — like lemon, peach and boysenberry —
with fortune cookies would be a really cool finish.
2 tablespoons plus 4 teaspoons purchased teriyaki sauce
1 8- to 10-ounce sirloin steak (about 1 inch thick)
3 tablespoons peanut oil
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon dark brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon grated lime peel
2 cups shredded Napa or other green cabbage
1/2 cup very thinly sliced red onion
2 tablespoons slivered fresh mint
Prepare barbecue (medium-high heat). Spoon 2 tablespoons teriyaki sauce onto
plate. Add steak; turn to coat. Sprinkle steak with pepper; let stand 10
Meanwhile, whisk oil, lime juice, dark brown sugar, grated lime peel and
remaining 4 teaspoons teriyaki sauce in small bowl to blend. Season dressing
with salt and pepper. Transfer half of dressing to medium bowl; mix in cabbage,
red onion and mint. Divide mixture between 2 plates.
Grill sirloin steak until cooked to
desired doneness, about 5 minutes per side for medium-rare. Transfer steak to
cutting board; slice thinly. Arrange steak slices atop cabbage mixture. Drizzle
remaining dressing and any steak juices on board over each salad and serve.
Makes 2 servings (can be doubled).
