  4. Transfer steak to a cutting board and rest, covered, for 5 minutes.
  5. While steak rests, toss salad greens, edamame, and cucumbers in sesame vinaigrette until dressed to your liking.
  6. When steak is done resting, slice against the grain.
  7. Serve steak and corn on the cob with miso butter on top. Enjoy salad on the side.

Made this with yellow squash instead of corn (had it recently and didn’t want it again so soon). Sautéed it with butter and a splash of soy sauce. A nice alternative that complimented the flavors of everything else.

Not for us. It was just a little too rich. We don't eat beef so I used chicken and I think the butter was too much for it. If I did it again, I'd try salmon instead.
