Marinated beef strips and salad – thinly sliced marinated flank steak cooked in a skillet and served on a garden salad. Healthy, easy and delicious.
Although this calls for at least 30 minutes of marinating for the beef you can definitely make this a day early and let it marinate overnight.
I used very thinly sliced flank steak which I sliced against the grain. Flank steak is very flavorful but can be tough so make sure you cut it very thin. You can do this by slightly freezing it before you cut it.
If you are not a flank steak fan you can definitely make this with any cut of beef of your choice. You can also substitute the beef for chicken breast.
Here is what you need for these delicious marinated beef strips and salad:
1 pound flank steak – cut very thinly against the grain
Soy sauce – enough to cover and coat all the meat
1/2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/4 tsp. dried red chili flakes – optional
1 large garlic clove – minced
2 scallions – chopped (white, light green and dark green)
Variety of fresh veggies for your salad
Place the beef in a bowl and add the soy sauce, Worcestershire, chili flakes, garlic clove and scallions. Make sure you have enough soy sauce to cover all the meat. Mix well and allow marinating for at least 30 minutes.
Heat a large skillet with some olive oil. When the skillet is hot, add the meat – without overcrowding the pan. Cook for about 2 minutes and flip. Cook for another 2 minutes and remove from heat.
Arrange a garden salad – with veggies of your choice – on a plate. Top with the cooked beef. Serve and enjoy!
