Citrus Steak Salad

Thinly sliced steak placed on top of crisp greens makes for a refreshing and citrusy salad — try serving this at an outdoor party or picnic. 

Ingredients

  • 6 tablespoons olive oil
  • ¼ cup cider vinegar
  • ¼ cup orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 teaspoon chile sauce
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 8 cups torn romaine
  • ¾ pound cooked beef sirloin steak, sliced
  • 2 cups sliced fresh strawberries
  • 1 medium red onion, sliced
  • One 11-ounce can mandarin oranges, drained
  • 1 cup pecan halves, toasted
  • ½ cup fresh goat cheese, crumbled

Directions

In a small bowl, whisk the first 8 ingredients; set aside. Divide romaine among four plates; top with steak, strawberries, onion, oranges, pecans, and cheese. Serve with vinaigrette. 

Steak Shopping Tip

Most cattle are fed a diet of grass until they are sent to a feedlot – where they are finished on corn. When possible, choose beef from cattle that are “100% grass fed” - it will be more expensive, but better for your health.

Steak Cooking Tip

The method used to cook beef is dependent on the cut. Cuts that are more tender, like filet mignon, should be cooked for a relatively short amount of time over high heat by grilling or sautéing. While less tender cuts, like brisket and short ribs, should be cooked for a longer time with lower heat by braising or stewing.
