Spicy Thai Steak Salad
Why is the Flat Iron Steak showing up everywhere? Because this menu-friendly marvel has it all—flavor, tenderness, versatility and value. Marinate* it in a sweet-spicy Thai Dressing (reserving half the dressing), then grill. Now, toss a salad of mixed lettuces and julienned green cabbage in the reserved dressing and top with a tangle of Thai basil, cilantro and mint. Slice beef, fan around salad, and add garnish.
