Note: Because only half of the marinade is used in this recipe for the salad dressing and the rest is used as a marinade and discarded, please double the first six ingredients. (The nutritionals shown are correct.) For added flavor, use dark (toasted) sesame oil instead of regular sesame oil.

  1. Mix tamari, unseasoned rice wine vinegar, scallions, garlic, sesame oil and sugar substitute in a small bowl. Pour half (about ¼ cup) into a resealable plastic bag; add thinly sliced steak and marinate overnight in the refrigerator.
  2. To remaining tamari mixture, add curry powder and ginger. Refrigerate overnight.
  3. Heat canola oil in a large skillet over high heat until very hot.
  4. Drain beef and discard marinade; quickly stir-fry beef 2 to 3 minutes in hot oil for medium doneness. Transfer to a large mixing bowl.
  5. Add salad greens, sliced bell pepper, drained water chestnuts and reserved tamari dressing. Toss to coat.

Cooking Tip

Feel free to swap in your favorite lettuce for this recipe, as net carb change will likely be minimal.
