Hanger Steak Salad is an easy and healthy dinner solution using only 6 ingredients and a simple homemade miso ginger dressing.


  • 1 pound skirt steak
  • Fine Sea Salt and Freshly Cracked Pepper
  • 1 tablespoon Vegetable oil
  • 1/2 pound baby potatoes
  • 6 ounces frozen green beans
  • 4 cups fresh baby spinach
  • 1/3 cup scallions sliced diagonally
  • Sweet Miso Ginger Dressing
  • 1 tablespoon black sesame seeds


  1. Remove steak from the refrigerator. Trim excess fat and season both sides with fine sea salt and freshly ground pepper. Set aside at room temperature.
  2. Pierce each potato 4-5 times with a fork. Potatoes will explode if you do not have a vent for the steam. Place in a microwave safe bowl with 1/2 cup water. Cover with plastic wrap and cook on high for 5-6 minutes or until potatoes are fork tender. Drain water, set aside.
  3. Place frozen green beans in a microwave safe dish with 1/2 cup of water and cook on high for 2 minutes. Stir and cook for an additional 2 minutes or until warm and tender. Drain water, set aside.
  4. Heat vegetable oil in a cast iron skillet or other frying pan over medium-high heat. Sear steak on both sides for 1-2 minute each. This is such a thin cut of meat that it takes nearly no time at all to achieve a nice medium-rare.
  5. Remove to a cutting board. Allow to rest for 3-4 minutes. Slice against the grain into 1/2 inch strips.
  6. Lay down a bed of spinach on serving dish. Divide greens beans, potatoes and steak evenly to both salads. Top with dressing, scallions and black sesame seeds. Enjoy!
