Steak & Strawberry Salad

img_1188.png

Who loves a good steak salad?

Then consider this – steak and strawberries. Such simple ingredients and such gorgeous flavours. Can be prepared in 10-15 minutes, is extremely filling as it takes a while to eat. I’m sure you will agree that a nice steak isn’t something you just gobble down.

I am definitely keeping this recipe for when I’m entertaining guests. I might, perhaps leave out the walnuts in the future to lower the fat content a little as it’s so easy to sprinkle too many nuts on a dish and by doing so, add around 200kcal to the total.

This serving is 633kcal with 42g protein and 46g of fat.

STEAK:

  • 1 beef top sirloin steak (3/4 inch thick and 1 pound)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp lime juice

SALAD:

  • 1 bunch romaine, torn
  • 1 cup of fresh strawberries, halved
  • A handful of thinly sliced red onion
  • 1 tbsp of crumbled blue cheese
  • 1 tsp chopped walnuts, raw or toasted

INSTRUCTIONS:

Season steak with salt and pepper. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add steak; cook 5-7 minutes on each side until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 135°; medium, 140°; medium-well, 145°). Remove from pan; let stand 5 minutes. Cut steak into bite-size strips; toss with lime juice. On a platter, combine romaine, strawberries and onion; top with steak. Sprinkle with cheese and walnuts. Serve with vinaigrette.
