Sweet & Salty Beef Salad

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/sweet_salty_beef_salad.html

From EatingWell:  September/October 1991, EatingWell Serves Two

Here's a salad that showcases the Asian yin and yang philosophy of combining opposing flavors. Mild, crisp iceberg lettuce allows the exotic hot-sweet-sour-salty flavors of the warm dressing to shine.

2 servings | Active Time: 35 minutes | Total Time: 35 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Stir fish sauce (or soy sauce) and brown sugar in a small bowl. Divide lettuce between 2 plates.
  2. Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until shimmering but not smoking. Add beef and cook, stirring until browned on the outside and still pink inside, 1 to 2 minutes. Spoon over the lettuce.
  3. Add the remaining 1 teaspoon oil, jalapeño (or serrano), onion and garlic to the pan and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the fish sauce (or soy sauce) mixture, remove from the heat and stir in orange and cilantro. Spoon the sauce over the salad and sprinkle with peanuts.
