1 1/4 lb. boneless beef strip steak

1 small Bartlett pear

2 scallions

1 small red chile

2 limes

1 tbsp. fish sauce

2 tsp. sugar

1 tsp. water

5 oz. mixed greens

1 c. fresh cilantro

Chopped peanuts


Trim fat off of boneless beef strip steak. Season steak with 1/2 teaspoon each salt and black pepper. Thinly slice Bartlett pear. Thinly slice scallions on a diagonal. Thinly slice small red chile. Set everything aside.

Heat cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add steak and cook to desired doneness, about 3 to 4 minutes per side, if you prefer medium-rare. Transfer steak to a cutting board and let rest.

From 2 limes, squeeze 4 tablespoons lime juice into a large bowl. To bowl, add fish sauce, sugar and water. Stir.

Add the pear slices, scallions and chile to the bowl. Toss to combine. Fold in 5 ounces mixed greens and 1 cup cilantro. Serve with the steak and sprinkle with chopped peanuts, if desired.
