  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp freshly grated ginger
  • 8 garlic cloves

  • Place oven rack about 3 in. (7.5 cm) from broiler and preheat. For dressing, squeeze ¼ cup (50 mL) lemon juice into a medium bowl. Whisk in sugar, vegetable and sesame oils, fish sauce, ginger, garlic, chili-garlic sauce, salt and pepper.
  • Place steaks on a rack set on a rimmed baking sheet. Broil until meat springs back when gently pressed, 3 to 4 min per side. Let rest 5 min. Meanwhile, slice or tear lettuce into pieces and thinly slice pepper. Combine in a large bowl.
  • Slice steak into strips. Add to dressing and turn until coated. Using tongs, remove meat to a plate. Then whisk mayonnaise into dressing and toss with romaine and peppers to evenly coat. Serve salad topped with steak slices and Chinese noodles.
