Ingredients

  • 8 ounces firm tofu, cubed
  • 6 cups torn or chopped romaine lettuce
  • 1/2 cup torn fresh mint leaves
  • 1/2 cup torn fresh basil leaves
  • 1 large cucumber, peeled, halved lengthwise, seeded, and thinly sliced
  • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon Thai fish sauce
  • 2 teaspoons dark sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar

  • 1 tablespoon peanut oil
  • 4 ounces skirt steak, trimmed, cut into 3 equal pieces, and cut across grain into thin strips
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Preparation

  1. 1. Arrange tofu on several layers of paper towels; cover with additional paper towels. Let stand 30 minutes, pressing down occasionally.
  2. 2. Combine lettuce and next 4 ingredients (through onion) in a large bowl. Combine juice and next 4 ingredients (through serrano) in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk. Drizzle half of the dressing over lettuce mixture; toss to coat.
  3. 3. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add peanut oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add tofu and beef; sprinkle with salt and black pepper. Cook 3 minutes or until tofu and meat are lightly browned, stirring once or twice. Remove pan from heat. Add remaining dressing to pan, scraping pan to loosen browned bits.
