Steak Salad

So I have been away from my kitchen lately. Its not that I have no recipes to motivate me--I actually have a constantly-growing bookmarking tab with all types of recipes waiting to be cooked--its just that with the end of the semester and finals coming soon, I feel like I should be studying 24/7.

I still don't though. I have to confess I was laying in my bed stumbling through cooking blogs for a large chunk of today. Although I guess I was ultimately working towards the blog.

Anyways, here is the recipe for tonight's dinner.

Steak Salad (adapted from Special K)
*The quantities are subjective, since some people like vegetables more than steak (cough cough, me), but others like meat more.
  • Green beans, blanched
  • Grape tomatoes, halved
  • Mixed greens
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 8 oz. boneless sirloin steak, cut 1-inch thick
  • 1/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese
  1. Combine green beans, tomatoes, and mixed greens in a large bowl. In a separate small bowl, whisk balsamic vinegar and olive oil. Season with S & P. Whisk to incorporate as much as possible and add to salad. Toss to mix.
  2. In a small bowl, combine cumin, salt, and pepper. Rub steaks with seasoning. 
  3. Heat a large pan over medium heat. Cook steaks until cooked to taste (I did about 9 minutes), flipping occasionally.
  4. Once cooked, slice steak into 1-inch strips and serve over salad. Sprinkle parmesan cheese on top.
