“We enjoy all kinds of ethnic foods,” writes Diane Halferty of Corpus Christi, Texas. “This beef recipe is easy to make, and very tasty.” With its sweet soy marinade and fresh veggies, there's lots to love in this main-dish salad.
Caramelized onion and sirloin steak seasoned with a cinnamon rub make this main dish salad different from typical versions. It’s easy to toss together with a packaged greens, blue cheese, dried cranberries and store-bought vinaigrette.
I've prepared this fast-to-fix salad for my bridge club several times, and I always get requests for the recipe," reports Susan Graham of Cherokee, Iowa. "If I don't have leftover roast beef on hand, I use sliced roast beef from the deli with equally tasty results."
"This is one of our favorite recipes," writes Mitzi Sentiff of Annapolis, Maryland. "The marinade gives the meat such a wonderful flavor." TIP: "All you need to complete this meal is some good bread," Mitzi notes.
Rather than use typical treatments for leftover steak, our home economists toss the chilled meat with romaine, sliced mushrooms and tomato for a fresh and filling salad. Blue cheese and french-fried onions make flavorful accents. To create a tangy-sweet dressing, just whisk together olive oil and a few other ingredients.—Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Greendale, Wisconsin
“This salad just explodes with flavors,” writes Tiffany Martinez. And the reader from Aliso Viejo, California also likes it because it's fast. “It's easy and quick to prepare, tastes delicious, and is a healthy dinner all on one plate!”
“I invented this recipe while watching a movie set on the Greek islands. I like the combination of warm grilled steak and sauteed mushrooms with cold salad ingredients.” —Chris Wells, Lake Villa, Illinois
