Steak Salad With Creamy Green Onion Dressing

By

This summer salad takes 10 to 15 minutes to prepare.

Prep Time: 20 hours

Total Time: 20 hours

Ingredients:

  • salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 sirloin strip steak. 1 to 1 1/2" thick (about 1 pound)
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 or 3 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 8 to 10 leaves romaine lettuce, rinsed and torn in pieces
  • radishes, sliced, optional
  • grated carrot, optional

Preparation:

Place a heavy oven-proof skillet in the oven; heat to 450°. Salt and pepper the steak on both sides. Turn one large burner to high; carefully place the hot pan on the burner. Cook the steak over high heat about 40 to 50 seconds on each side; carefully move the pan back to the hot oven. Cook for about 7 to 10 minutes, depending on how well done you like your steak. Remove the steak from the pan; cover with foil and let rest for a few minutes. Place the hot skillet over medium heat; add water and vinegar. Stir to loosen browned bits and reduce to about half. Add cream and onion; bring to a boil. Pour cream and onion mixture into a small bowl then prepare salad.

Slice steak thinly at an angle. In a medium bowl or 2 to 4 separate serving dishes, arrange torn romaine leaves, sliced radish, and other vegetables, if desired. Top with steak slices and drizzle with the warm dressing. Serve immediately.
Serves 2 to 4.
