  • 1 teaspoon 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • ½ cup 125 ml avocado oil or light olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • ½ tablespoon ½ tablespoon lime juice

  • 3 oz. 75 g cherry tomatoes
  • 5 oz. 150 g cucumber
  • 3 oz. 75 g lettuce
  • ½ ½ red onionred onions
  • fresh cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon 1 tablespoon sesame seeds

Instructions

Instructions are for 2 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Make the sesame mayonnaise by mixing egg yolk and mustard in a bowl.
  2. Add avocado oil in a very slow stream while whisking continuously. You can do this by hand or using a hand mixer or immersion blender. Add sesame oil, lime juice and spices towards the end, once the mayonnaise has emulsified. Reserve.
  3. Mix all ingredients for the beef marinade and pour into a plastic bag. Add the beef and marinate for 15 minutes or more at room temperature.
  4. Chop all vegetables for the salad, except the scallions, into bite-sized pieces. Divide between two plates.
  5. Heat a medium frying pan over medium heat. Add sesame seeds to the dry pan, and toast them for a couple of minutes, or until they’re lightly browned and fragrant. Set aside.
  6. Pat the meat dry on both sides with paper towels. Fry for a minute or two on each side on high heat, or until cooked to medium. (In this dish, the beef is best served at medium, but you can make it well done if you prefer.)
  7. Fry the scallions for a minute in the same pan.
  8. Slice the meat, across the grain, into thin slices. Place beef and scallions on top of the vegetables. Serve with roasted sesame seeds and sesame mayonnaise.

Tip!

In a hurry? If you don’t feel like making mayo from scratch, just add some sesame oil and lime juice to store-bought mayonnaise. Craving a bit of variety? Try swapping in salmon or pre-cooked chicken instead of the beef.

    Made this tonight. It was delicious, maybe one of the best things I've made from diet doctor. Of course, there was a ribeye steak sitting on top so how can you go wrong! Why is the dressing called "mayonnaise"? There is no mayonnaise in the ingredients but I ask because the picture shows something on the side that looks like a mayonnaise dressing. Did I miss something?

    I was looking for a recipe using a beef roast as that is what I have on hand at the moment. So I think I will triple this recipe since my roast is 3 pounds or may quadruple this. I will use my Instant Pot with the marinade in it and hope for the best. I am having a difficult time finding keto recipes using the meat I already have in my freezer. So hoping this will work.

    Justin, mayonnaise is made from egg yolk and oil. They are just making homemade mayonnaise.

    Just wondering how 1 serving contains 11 grams of carbs? Following nutrition facts, I ended up with smaller value.

    P.S. It's very difficult to follow the rules when 10 different sources give 10 different versions of nutrition info.... how to know which info is the only correct one?

    Hi Andy!

    Unfortunately nutritional info is no exact science. We just have to try to do our best. :)
