Seared Steak with Minted Green-Bean Slaw

We like the economy, flavor, and tenderness of chuck steak, but sirloin or any other boneless steak, pounded thin, is excellent, too.

  • 12 ounces green beans, cut on the bias into thin slices
  • 1 tablespoon minced shallot (from 1 small shallot)
  • 3 tablespoons rice vinegar, divided
  • 3 tablespoons thinly sliced fresh mint leaves, plus whole mint leaves, for garnish
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 4 beef chuck top-blade steaks (each 5 to 6 ounces and about 1/2 inch thick)
  • 3 tablespoons hoisin sauce


  1. Step 1

    Toss together beans, shallot, 2 tablespoons vinegar, mint, and 2 tablespoons oil; season with salt and pepper. Let stand, tossing occasionally, at least 30 minutes and up to 2 hours.

  2. Step 2

    Meanwhile, briefly pound steaks on both sides with the tenderizing side of a meat mallet; season with salt and pepper. Stir together hoisin and remaining tablespoon vinegar. Brush steaks with hoisin mixture; let stand at least 20 minutes and up to 1 hour. Heat remaining tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add steaks and cook, flipping once, until edges are caramelized and deep brown, about 5 minutes for medium-rare. Let rest 10 minutes. Divide steaks and beans among 4 plates and garnish with mint leaves.

    This is one of the best steak recipes I have made. I used boneless rib eye pounded thin. Would highly recommend this recipe!
