Grilled Rib-Eye Steak Marinated in Asian Spices and Korean Pear

Asian-Style Slaw Recipe with Korean Pears

Please note that most of the prep time is marinating time.
Prep Time 2 hours 30 minutes
Total Time 2 hours 30 minutes
Servings 6 as a side


For the dressing:

  • 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon unseasoned rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons fresh orange juice
  • 2 teaspoons freshly grated ginger
  • 1 teaspoon chile paste Sambal Oelek is perfect
  • 2 teaspoons granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/3 cup grape seed oil
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil

For the slaw:

  • 8 cups finely shredded green cabbage
  • 7 ounces raw enoki mushrooms
  • 3/4 cup finely sliced red sweet peppers
  • 4 finely chopped scallions
  • 1 Korean pear cut into thin strips
  • Sea salt to taste


For the dressing:

  1. In a small mixing bowl, combine the vinegar, orange juice, ginger, chile paste, sugar and pepper. Slowly whisk in the grape seed and sesame oil. Set aside.

For the slaw:

  1. Add the cabbage and enoki mushrooms to a very large mixing bowl and toss with the dressing. Be sure it's very well coated. Then cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let it marinate for at least 2 and up to 6 hours, in the refrigerator.
  2. Add the peppers, scallions and pear and toss until all of the ingredients are evenly combined.
  3. Season with a bit of salt if necessary.

Recipe Notes

While I'm featuring Korean pears, you could also use Bosc or another firm pear.
