Steak and Blue Cheese Salad

SONY DSCMy husband completely outdid himself with his grilling skills again! We put together this scrumptious salad for our dinner the other night and it totally hit the spot! We love a great salad and love concocting up new ones.  I got a great deal at Kroger on a huge piece of London Broil, thick cut, not a lot of fatty grains to it and knew this would be perfect on the grill. Now, if we could eat that hunk of steak raw without the chance of getting sick, you better believe we would! It’s awfully tempting (I hear some people gagging, teehee), but Bill has really perfected his grilling skills and gets the steak spot on perfect everytime! We call it “slightly cooked, slightly mooing”. We don’t eat a whole lot of red meat due to the fat and such, but sometimes you just need a nice juicy burger or steak! This salad came together quick and simply, here is what you need to do to make it for yourself!

Ingredients:

A nice thicker piece of steak ( I used London Broil, about 2.5 lbs. You can use less, but my kids eat steak so I bought bigger)

1 bag of baby spinach, washed, drained and mostly dried

1 large red pepper, sliced into strips

2 medium onions, sliced

1 small tomato, diced small

1 container of blue cheese crumbles

2 whole garlic cloves, peeled

Olive Oil

Black Pepper

Sea Salt

Oregano

light Caesar dressing

Directions:

First prep your steak. Place it in a large baking pan, drizzle with olive oil salt and pepper. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Cut up your pepper and onions and prep the garlic cloves. Place them in a baking pan, drizzle with olive oil and oregano and roast for about 20-30 minutes or until the vegetables are softened and browning nicely. While the vegetables are roasting cook your steak, they should be done at almost the same time. Remove from heat when done and set aside. Plate your spinach onto your dinner plates. Add diced tomatoes and roasted vegetables. Slice the steak into somewhat thick strips, add to the salad. Sprinkle salads with desired amount of blue cheese and light Caesar dressing then add a little more black pepper. Enjoy and don’t forget to follow me on Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest!

  1. I love a rare steak and I’ve eaten raw beef a few times. We don’t have London Broil here in New Zealand but from what I have read London Broil is a cooking method rather than a cut of meat? But with that reasoning, any marinated steak that is broiled or grilled would be therefore known as London Broil.
