In the mood for Balsamic Beef Steak Salad

I must admit that I don’t crave beef like I do chicken, pork and turkey but I do like a good steak salad every now and then.

I’ve been making this lovely salad for years. YEARS! I came up with it before I had the girls,  was working long hours and getting home late but needing to eat something healthy and filling. It’s incredibly easy which was perfect then and still is now for although I work from home I still get in late from the girl’s activities and need to eat something good.

The recipe calls for a 600g piece of lean beef steak but if you can’t find one, just use 600g of steaks. I cook the steak(s) whole as opposed to slicing prior to cooking to keep the moisture in. I then slice it after the meat has rested. Mmmm, lovely juicy beef. That’s about as difficult as this recipe gets. The rest is tossing a few salady things and making a quick warm dressing.

Oh, the dressing. This lovely tangy number is made with a little oil, a bit of garlic, a sprinkling of sugar and about a third of a cup of balsamic vinegar. Now you might be thinking that’s a little too vinegary for you, but try it before you decide. Yes, it’s tangy but once the dressing hits those salad leaves and that juicy beef? YUM!


What’s your favourite protein? Beef? Chicken? Pork? Turkey? Lamb? Fish? Tofu?  What do you crave more than anything else? If I had to choose, I think it would be pork or turkey.
