Ginger & Soy Basted Beef With Leafy Green Salad

Since I have discovered edamame beans, I have started including it in almost every dish that I make. One of my all-time favourite salads is this leafy green salad topped with juicy, yet tender, soy basted sirloin slices.

When searing the sirloin, be sure to use a piping hot cast iron pan. If you are scared of burning the meat you can add a dash of oil to the pan before sizzling the steak, however the steak will release its own juices and will form a nice crust if done on a dry pan.
