This Hanger Steak Salad from Zakary Pelaccio's Eat with Your Hands isn't much of a salad at all. It's really slices of beefy hanger steak dressed roaring hot with a Southeast Asian dressing and a handful of basil and cilantro. But there's no need to argue semantics when a steak or salad or whatever you want to call it is this good. The real story here is steak plus fish sauce and chiles equals awesome.

Little"rags" of beef (to make this more economical) are quick-sauteed, their residual heat wilting the arugula just enough to take away some of its raw bite. Maggie likes to add mushrooms and calls it an Italian version of stir-fry.
