- Serves 2 -

10-12oz boneless New York strip steak
olive oil
salt and pepper
3 Tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
2 Tablespoons lime juice
1/4 teaspoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon fish sauce
2 teaspoons Sambal Oelek chili paste
1/8 teaspoon sugar
10-12 Thai or sweet Italian basil leaves (or to taste)
4-5 cups torn green leaf lettuce
1 cup chopped cucumber
1 cup grape tomatoes, quartered or halved


Preheat grill to 400 degrees F. Clean and oil grill grates. Drizzle olive oil over both sides of each steak and season with salt and pepper. Place the steak directly over the fire and grill 5-8 minutes per side. Remove from grill and allow to rest for at least 5-8 minutes before thinly slicing.

Meanwhile, in a measuring cup, mix together the soy, lime, sesame oil, fish sauce, Sambal and sugar until well combined; set aside.

Place the lettuce in a large bowl or plate, top with basil leaves, cucumber, tomato and steak. Drizzle with dressing and serve immediately. Enjoy!
