Skip the grated cheese and croutons and serve an Asian-inspired salad with homemade seven-ingredient vinaigrette. Serve with soba noodles, followed by dessert.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat broiler.

Step 2

Sprinkle steak evenly with ginger, salt, and garlic. Place on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray; broil 6 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Let stand 5 minutes. Cut steak diagonally across grain into thin slices.

Step 3

Combine cilantro and next 6 ingredients (through chile paste) in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk. Combine lettuce and remaining ingredients in a large bowl. Drizzle half of miso mixture over lettuce mixture; toss to coat.

Step 4

Place 1 1/2 cups lettuce mixture on each of 4 plates. Top each with 3 ounces steak; top with miso mixture.

Step 5

Dessert: Heat 1/4 cup sugar, 1/4 cup torn mint, and 1/4 cup water until sugar melts. Strain; cool. Stir in 4 cups halved strawberries.

This was delicious, specially with the soba noodles. I did make the flank steak, but I ended up eating it with left over pan grilled turkey tenderloin, this was a delicious option.

I cook a lot from Cooking Light, and this is one of my favorite recipes. Fast, very low calorie, flavorful, and lots of veggies. I highly recommend adding to your stock list of easy weeknight meals. Cut the romaine in 1/8" strips.

I'd agree with the prior poster, I could not find miso paste, so I used miso soup mix and just mixed w/very little water to make a paste rather than a soup. Recipe was very easy to make and tasted great - family loved it! This would be a great summer potluck dish. Not sure how in the picture the soba noodles were so brown - we just added soy sauce, that did the trick.

Once I was able to track down all of the ingredients for this recipe (miso paste, chili paste with garlic), it was easy and quick to make. I found the miso dressing a little bland, so I added a few teaspoons of soy sauce, and it really perked it up. The presentation of the dish on a plate is impressive and colorful. I would love to try this again with some seared Ahi tuna instead of steak.
