Easy Sirloin Caesar Salad Recipe

Easy Sirloin Caesar Salad Recipe

A tangy sauce that combines bottled salad dressing, lemon juice and Dijon mustard flavors this filling main-dish salad. You save on cleanup time because both the steak and bread are cooked on the grill.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 5 min. + marinating Grill: 15 min. YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup creamy Caesar salad dressing
  • 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1 beef top sirloin steak (3/4 inch thick and 1 pound)
  • 6 slices French bread (1 inch thick)
  • 12 cups torn romaine
  • 1 medium tomato, chopped

Directions

  • 1. In a small bowl, whisk the salad dressing, mustard and lemon juice; set aside 3/4 cup. Pour 3/4 cup dressing mixture in a large resealable plastic bag; add steak. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for 1 hour, turning occasionally. Cover and refrigerate remaining dressing mixture.
  • 2. Brush both sides of bread with 1/4 cup of the reserved dressing mixture. Using long-handled tongs, moisten a paper towel with cooking oil and lightly coat the grill rack. Grill bread, uncovered, over medium heat for 1-2 minutes on each side or until lightly toasted. Wrap in foil and set aside.
  • 3. Drain and discard marinade. Grill steak, covered, over medium heat for 5-8 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a meat thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°).
  • 4. Place romaine and tomato on a serving platter. Slice steak diagonally; arrange over salad. Serve with toasted bread and remaining dressing. Yield: 6 servings.
