Spicy Steak and Mango Salad

Warm medium-rare steak mixed with avocado and mango may just be the biggest aphrodisiac I know.  I have made this “salad” many times and it remains a well-loved, much requested favorite.  This is one of those meals that you want to keep firmly in the rotation.

Spicy Steak and Mango Salad

Servings: 4

1 tablespoon canola oil

1 rib eye steak ( 3/4 to 1 lb), diced

salt and freshly ground pepper


2 cups green cabbage, shredded

2 cups vermicelli

1 1/4 cup mango, diced

1/2 cup daikon, shredded

1 tablespoon fresh jalapeno, minced

1/2 cup scallions, diced

2 tablespoons mint, minced

1 tablespoon fresh basil, chiffonade

Mixed in carefully:

1 cup avocado, diced


1/4 cup teriyaki sauce

1/4 cup sweet chili sauce

4 tablespoons sriracha


1/2 cup roasted peanuts

3 tablespoons red pepper flakes

lime wedges, for garnish

In a medium skillet over high heat add canola oil.  Season rib eye steak with salt and pepper and sear in skillet about 3-4 minutes per side until medium-rare.

Meanwhile in a large bowl combine salad ingredients.  In a small bowl mix dressing.  Once steak has cooked, allow to rest for 2 minutes and then dice and add to salad.

Coat salad with dressing and then carefully mix in avocados.  Finish with roasted peanuts, red pepper flakes, and lime wedges.  Voila: a steak and mango salad worthy of fine dining but also well suited to a night enjoyed at home.  Enjoy!

  1. This dish was delicious! It runs pretty spicy if you follow the recipe (which is a great thing from my perspective). I substituted sirloin for the ribeye based on the price and quality of the meat at our market. Also, I added cilantro, which really complimented the rest of the flavors.

    All around good recipe. This one definitely will become part of my rotation.
