    How to make it  55 minutes


  • 1

    Make the dressing first. In a small saucepan whisk together the vinegar, honey, chili powder, paprika, and ginger. Slowly whisk in the water and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to medium and simmer uncovered for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and whisk in the lime or lemon juice. Set aside.

  • 2

    Peel the mangoes (but not the plums), cut the fruits in half, remove the pits, and cut into 1/2-inch thick slices. Place in a large, shallow bowl (you should have about 5 cups). Add the watercress, cabbage, cucumber, red pepper, green onions, cilantro, and mint. Toss gently to mix. Set aside.

  • 3

    Diagonally cut the steak into 1/4-inch thick strips. In a large bowl coat the steak with 3 tablespoons of the dressing, the soy sauce, garlic, and sugar. Heat a wok or nonstick skillet over high heat, add the oil, and then the steak. Stir-fry until the steak strips are cooked to taste.

    Spoon the steak over the salad. Drizzle with the rest of the dressing and sprinkle with the peanuts.
