Fried Wontons With Oriental Noodle Salad And Grilled Flank Steak

  • Yield: 12 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons minced shallots
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 cup sesame oil
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 1/2 pound flank steak
  • For the salad:
  • 1 cup cooked rice noodles
  • 1/4 cup julienned red onions
  • 1/4 cup julienned roasted red peppers
  • 1/4 cup julienned roasted yellow peppers
  • 2 tablespoons chopped green onions
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 3 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon chopped cilantro
  • Salt and pepper
  • 6 wonton wrappers, 4 by 4-inch, cut diagonally, 12 triangles total
  • Essence
  • Drizzle of sesame oil for garnish

Directions

  • Preheat the grill. In a mixing bowl, whisk the shallots, 1 tablespoon garlic, sesame oil, soy sauce, and rice wine vinegar together. Place the flank steak in a small glass square dish and pour the marinade over it. Marinate the steak for 1 hour. Remove from the marinade and place on the grill. Grill on each side for 3 to 4 minutes for medium rare.
  • For the salad, combine all the ingredients together and season with salt and pepper.
  • For the wontons, place the triangles in the fryer and fry until golden brown, about 2 to 3 minutes. Stir the wontons consistently to prevent from sticking together. Remove from the fryer and drain on a paper-lined plate. Season with Essence. Slice the flank steak into 1/4-inch slices. Place a small amount of the salad on the fried triangles. Top each triangle with a slice of flank steak. Drizzle with sesame oil.
