3 cups mizuna leaves, torn into bite-size pieces

1/4 cup chiffonade Thai basil or regular basil, optional

1/4 cup fresh lime juice

1 tablespoon soy sauce

1 tablespoon rice vinegar

1 tablespoon finely diced shallot

1 tablespoon finely grated fresh ginger

2 teaspoons sugar

2 tablespoons peanut oil

Salt and freshly ground pepper


  1. Whisk soy sauce, lime juice, chile paste, and peanut oil together in a small baking dish. Add the steaks, turn to coat, cover, and let marinate for 30 minutes in the refrigerator. Remove from the refrigerator 15 minutes before grilling.
  2. Heat grill to high. Remove steaks from marinade and pat dry. Season both sides with pepper and grill for 3 minutes per side or until slightly charred and cooked to medium-rare doneness. Remove from the grill, let rest 5 minutes, and slice into 1/4-inch thick slices.
