I don’t have a video for this recipe.
If I had a photo, I would most certainly use it. That is... unless the photo I have sucks. For now, you'll just have to picture a big heaping helping of
Steak & Fry Salad
...in your mind.
Steak & Fry Salad

Steak & Fry Salad

Think Steak Panzanella Salad, but with fries instead of croutons. And trust me, it's an 11 outta 10.

Serves 2-3


Steak Salad

  • Neutral oil
  • 1 pound steak, I used a coulotte but your choice - rib eye would be great too
  • Kosher salt
  • Coarse ground black pepper
  • 1 ear corn, husk & silk removed
  • 1 bundle asparagus
  • 3 Yukon gold potatoes
  • 5 cups salad greens - you do you but any combo of arugula, chopped romaine, spinach etc would be ideal
  • 1/2 cup diced sugar snap peas, cut diagonally into 1/4 inch pieces
  • 1.5 cups cherry tomatoes, cut in half
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced English cucumber rounds, not peeled
  • 3 Holland peppers, or 4 red jalapenos
  • 1/4 cup mayo
  • 1 tablespoon soy
  • 1 tablespoon sriracha

Salad Dressing

  • ⅔ cup neutral oil
  • 3 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • ½ teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon sriracha
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 1/2 tablespoon ginger paste
  • Pinch of kosher salt


  1. Preheat smoker or oven to 275
  2. Lightly oil steak, then generously season with salt & pepper - put on smoker and cook to 125 degrees, then remove and set aside
  3. Heat grill to medium high
  4. Rub corn with oil, season with salt & pepper and put on grill - your goal is nicely charred all the way around, then remove and cut off the ear
  5. Oil salt & pepper asparagus and put on grill, using a grill pan if you have - cook approximately 10 minutes or until crisp tender, then remove
  6. While it cooks - peel potatoes then cut into equal size planks, approximately 1/2 " in diameter
  7. Bring a pot of water to a boil, and cook potatoes (they're not fries yet) 10 minutes, then remove to paper towels to drain, and refrigerate 15 minutes
  8. Heat a pot of oil to 325, cook fries about 5 minutes, or JUST until they start to color, then remove to paper towels and refrigerate 15 minutes
  9. Combine mayo, soy & sriracha - mix well and brush on both sides of the steak
  10. Heat grill or flattop to medium high, and cook steak about a minute a side, then remove to rest
  11. Turn oil up to 375 and cook fries one final time until golden brown and crispy - 3-4 minutes, then remove
  12. Combine all dressing ingredients in a bowl or shaker, and mix well to combine
  13. In a large bowl put the salad greens, the corn, the sugar snap peas, tomatoes, cucumbers and peppers
  14. Add dressing then toss, and add the asparagus, fries and sliced steak
  15. Happy eating
