Make It

1. Heat gas grill to high or prepare charcoal grill with hot coals or heat broiler.


2. In bowl, stir ginger, garlic, sugar, soy sauce and pepper to form a paste. Rub 1 tablespoon onto one side of steak. Grill, rub side down, 5 to 6 minutes. Rub remaining paste onto top of steak; flip. Grill 5 to 6 minutes or until temperature measures 140 degrees F for medium rare. Remove from grill; let stand 10 minutes. (Or coat broiler pan with cooking spray; place steak, rub side up. Broil, 4 inches from heat, 6 minutes. Flip; rub remaining paste onto steak; broil 6 minutes more.)

Dressing and salad:

3. In medium-size bowl, combine lime juice, cilantro, soy sauce, sugar, garlic and pepper. Whisk in oil until blended. Peel cucumber; slice lengthwise in half, then cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices. Trim and discard 1/4 inch off stem end of bok choy. Cut remaining bok choy crosswise into 1/2-inch strips. Tear Boston lettuce into bite-size pieces.

4. Toss cucumber, bok choy, lettuce and onion with 3/4 cup salad dressing. Thinly slice steak on the diagonal against the grain. Place about 2-1/2 cups salad onto each plate; top with 4 thin slices of steak. Drizzle about 1 tablespoon dressing on top of meat. Makes 6 servings.
