This salad is a take on my favorite salad at Houston’s / Hillstone Restaurant,  their Evil Jungle Salad (also called Thai Steak & Noodle Salad). It is packed with so many flavors, I devour it every time I order it! I make my version gluten-free without noodles and more greens. I also add peanut sauce to mine- it seems like the perfect compliment to this yummy meal in a bowl!

Yield: 2-3 salads

Thai Peanut and Steak Salad with Mango

Ingredients

For the Steak Marinade:

  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 3 teaspoons lime juice
  • 3 teaspoons fish sauce
  • 1 large clove garlic, smashed then minced
  • 2 teaspoons Sriracha
  • 3 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 1 lb Filet Mignon, cut into 1" squares

For the salad

  • 3 cups chopped Romaine
  • 3 cups shredded Napa Cabbage
  • ½ cup cilantro, chopped
  • 10 basil leaves, torn into small pieces
  • 10 Mint leaves, torn into small pieces
  • 1 Avocado, chopped into 1" pieces
  • 1 Mango, chopped into 1" pieces
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes, cut into halves

For the Thai Peanut Dressing

  • 1/4 cup Peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons Rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Honey
  • 1 tablespoon Soy sauce (gluten free version if you'd like)
  • 2 teaspoons Water
  • 2 tablespoons Sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon Cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon Red pepper flakes
  • 2 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon Canola oil
  • Salt to taste

For garnish

  • 1/2 cup chopped peanuts
  • mint leaves

Instructions

  1. *Make marinade and pour half of it over the cut up filet mignon. Set the other half of this dressing aside to dress the greens. Marinate the steak for a minimum 30 minutes.
  2. *Mix ingredients for the Thai Peanut dressing in glass bowl set aside.
  3. *Toss napa cabbage, romaine lettuce, cilantro, basil and mint in a large glass bowl. Cover and place in the refrigerator.
  4. *Heat a cast iron skillet (or other skillet) over high heat. Working in two batches so as not to crowd the meat, sear the steak cubes about 1-2 minutes on top and bottom, then sides until browned on each side. You want the steak to be medium rare-medium. Let steak cool 10-15 minutes. You could even place in the refrigerator to speed it along.
  5. *Toss the refrigerated salad ingredients with remaining marinade. Add avocado and mango. Divide into 3-4 bowls. Top the salad with seared steak and drizzle with peanut dressing. Top with chopped peanuts and mint leaves. Serve immediately.

    I made this tonight and it was seriously better than any salad I’ve ever had in a restaurant. Next time I’m going to make it with salmon.
