Stacked Shanghai Steak Salad


  • 375 to 500 g Beef Top Sirloin Cap Grilling Steak, about 1 inch thick
  • Canola oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 cup red cabbage, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup carrot matchsticks

  • 1 tbsp sesame oil

  3. Divide dressing evenly among four 1 L mason jars. Divide veggies and meat among the jars, layering in the following order: cabbage, carrot, noodles, beef, bean sprouts, and cilantro.
