What’s for dinner?

20 Dec

Steak and potato salad is the best of two worlds.  You get the cool taste of a salad and the heartiness of a meat and potato dinner.  This is a great way to get some greens if you aren’t too keen on eating “bunny food”.  Of course, if you aren’t a fan or red meat you can always substitute turkey or chicken!  This is an at-home version of Applebee’s version.

2 8oz. sirloin steak

8 c. baby spinach

6 small red or yellow potatoes

2 large tomatoes

1/2 large red onion

2 hardboiled eggs

Italian dressing



1/4 cup olive oil

1/4 c. balsamic vinegar

1/8 c. wocestershire sauce

1/8 c. soy sauce

2 tspn. dijon mustard

2 tspn. minced garlic

dash of salt and pepper


Mix all marinade ingredients in large zip lock bag. Add steaks and refrigerate, turning occasionally for at least 2 hours.  Grill steaks on grill or heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and cook until center is warm, but pink (for medium rare).  Meanwhile, boil potatoes until soft in center.  Chop steak, potato, tomato, onion and egg into 1/2 in. pieces and toss with spinach and italian dressing.  Serves 2.
