The beef steak is super tender by marinating with also Yakiniku sauce! This meal salad recipe is definitely flavorful and filling.

How To Make A Good YAKINIKU Steak Salad

The Marinade Sauce

The best result of homemade Japanese BBQ sauce (Yakiniku sauce) is much better to make the day before.

The flavors in the sauce will combine well and the taste will be rounded sweet and flavorful.

Marinade the beef steak with this BBQ sauce overnight.

The Salad Dressing

You can use homemade Yakiniku sauce for dressing this salad bowl, but also, you can drizzle Sweet Chili Sauce for the extra Asian flavor.

If you prefer no additives product, this is my best sweet chili sauce ever.

Corn Syrup Cane Sugar-Free, MSG, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Vegan.

Asian Peanut Butter Dressing

The Steak For Japanese-YAKINIKU-Style

You can use your choice of beef steaks such as

sirloin, flank steak, skirt steak, or even chuck steak.

Sliced thinly against the grain, with a perfect medium-rare sear-It’s Japanese YAKINKU style.

For the upgrade version, slice up filet mignon, rib eye, or Kalbi beef short ribs.

(by the way, pork, chicken, and shrimp are worth trying for another day!)

Here’s the suggestion to get fillet mignon for BBQ salad.

We purchase a Whole Tenderloin (Filet) at Costco, then, trim and slice it up into pieces for steak dinner at home.

We collect small cuts or the top and end and slice them up to make Japanese BBQ beef steak.

Just throw them and homemade Yakiniku sauce in a freezer bag and store them in the freezer.

What’s Kalbi

Kalbi or galbi or flanken generally refers to thin-sliced bone-in short ribs. Unlike American and European-style short ribs, Korean-style short ribs are cut across the rib bones and can be cooked quickly.

Korean short ribs are also called Kalbi in Japan, which are ranked in the top popular menu in BBQ restaurants.

How To Slice The Steak

Slice the beefsteak against the grain.

It’s an important tip to make the tough meat tender and also it can help to marinate meat quickly.

Find the direction of the grain (parallel muscle fibers) and then slice beef against the grain.

If possible, cut diagonally to increase surface area since it can help the sauce season the meat efficiently.

Moreover, pound skirt steak, flank steak, and sliced chuck roast beef with a meat mallet before slicing.

How To Cook Thin-Sliced Beef For Yakiniku Salad

After marinating the beef, add corn/potato starch or rice flour (gluten-free) to it.

This process helps to keep the juice inside the beef, thicken the sauce, and add texture.

Drain the sauce if needed before adding the starch.

Can you skip coating the beef with the sauce and starch mix?

Personally, I highly recommend doing this process to make a flavorful crust on the beef.

Also, I use a non-stick frying pan to cook sticky beef steak. It is an easy way to cook and clean, besides, it’s easy to flip over the sliced beef.

Of course, you can use a cast-iron skillet like my hubby. In this way, you can make each beef crispier.

The Salad Base

You want to experience all the crispy, crunchy, healthy vegetables (instead of going on rice) in this meal salad.

Loads of crisp and crunch vegetables such as cucumber, carrot, radish, broccoli, juicy cherry tomatoes, and creamy avocado, don’t forget chopped green onions!

Use spring mix or chopped your choice of lettuce greens.

Even adding coleslaw on the top will be a great combination with juicy greasy beef steak.

Add glass noodles to make it more filling.

Do You Know?

How To Cook Glass Noodles

Glass noodles are often used in Asian cooking and as the name suggests, the noodles are clear and translucent.
They are known by many names – cellophane noodles, Fensi, Chinese vermicelli, and Bean Thread Noodles.

Adding glass noodles is optional, however, we like them in the salad.

Unique texture, absorbing the sauce and dressing, and it goes well with soy-sauce based marinated beef. Moreover, it makes your stomach filled.

Cook following the package direction.

If you are interested in my way, here it is.

  1. Put glass noodles in a bowl, and pour boiled water.
  2. Allow it for 3 – 4 minutes until the noodles become clear and soften.
  3. Drain the water, rinse the noodles with running cold water with few times
  4. Drain the water, and cut into short if desired.
