INGREDIENTS:

  • 4 Ribeye Steaks (approximately .6-.7 lbs each/1 inch thick)

    Marinade:

  • 1/4 cup of coconut aminos (or organic Tamari)

  • 1 Tbsp sriracha sauce

  • 2 Tbsp @freakflagfoods Kickin-Curry Mole

  • 1 Tbsp honey

  • 1 tsp rice wine vinegar

  • t tsp clean ketchup

  • dash of salt (optional)

SALAD:

  • 8 cups of leafy greens (kale, mixed greens, arugula work well, 2 cups per person)

  • 3/4 cup shredded carrots

  • 1 cup of radishes, chopped

  • 1 cucumber, sliced/diced

  • 1 cup of chopped tomatoes

  • 1 small red onion, chopped

  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced or chopped

  • mint leaves (about 1/8 cup, chopped)

    Dressing:

  • 1 Tbsp avocado oil

  • 1 Tbsp lime juice

  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger

  • 2 Tbsp coconut aminos

  • salt & pepper

  • dash of honey (optional)

INSTRUCTIONS:

  • Place all marinade ingredients into a bowl or bag and stir to combine. Marinade the ribeyes for 1-8 hours in the fridge either in a silicon/plastic-free bag or covered bowl

  • Make dressing and refrigerate until ready to eat.

  • Combine all salad ingredients into a large bowl and set aside.

  • When you’re ready to cook, turn grill on medium high heat.

  • Place ribeye steaks on the grill and cook for 4-5 minutes per side for medium rare, adjusting cooking time based on your preference. Dispose of remaining marinade.

  • Let steaks sit for a minute on a cutting board. Slice into thin pieces and add to salad. Toss with dressing, divide into 4 bowls and enjoy!

NOTES:

  • Recommend buying organic or non-GMO ingredients for the marinade and dressing. I like Sky Valley Sriracha sauce, coconut aminos (soy-free) or Organic Tamari (gluten-free), Annies, 365 brand or Primal Kitchen ketsup.

  • The Freak Flag Foods Kickin’ curry mole is available at local Twin Cities grocery stores as well as on-line. In place of this mole you could use another store bought mole sauce or a red curry paste mixed with combine coconut milk, tomato paste, apple cider vinegar

  • This marinade would also be great with a pork tenderloin or chicken thighs. Adjust cooking time accordingly.

  • You can also prepare your steaks using a sous vide and finishing on the grill if you are familiar with this cooking technique.
