Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 3 tbsp teriyaki sauce
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp dark sesame oil
  • 1 tsp granulated sugar
  • 1/2 to 1 tsp Tabasco sauce , or bottled hot sauce
  • 1/4 tsp freshly grated ginger , or 1/2 tsp bottled chopped ginger
  • 1 garlic clove , or 1/2 tsp bottled chopped garlic
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 375 g top sirloin grilling steak , 1/2 in. thick
  • salt
  • ground black pepper
  • 1/2 bunch asparagus
  • 1/2 head romaine lettuce
  • 1/2 pint grape or cherry tomatoes
  • 2 green onions

Instructions

  • Lightly oil grill and heat to medium-high. In a small bowl, whisk orange juice with teriyaki, vegetable and sesame oils, sugar, 1/2 to 1 tsp (2 to 5 mL) hot sauce (depending on how hot you like it), ginger, garlic and salt.
  • Sprinkle both sides of steak with salt and pepper. Partially fill a large frying pan with water. Bring to a boil over high heat. Meanwhile, snap tough ends from asparagus and discard. Add asparagus to boiling water. Boil until tender-crisp, 2 to 4 minutes. Drain, then immediately plunge into a bowl of cold water. Drain, then pat dry with paper towels. Cut asparagus into 2-inch (5-cm) spears. Place in a large bowl.
  • Wash and dry lettuce. Tear into large pieces. Cut tomatoes in half, if you want. Thinly slice onions. Toss all with asparagus and half of dressing. Arrange on a platter.
  • Place steak on grill and cook, uncovered, until meat resists slightly when pressed, 2 to 4 minutes per side for medium-rare. Remove to a cutting board. Let stand 5 minutes before slicing into thin strips. Scatter beef over salad. Drizzle with remaining dressing.
