This is a very popular dish at restaurants in central Pennsylvania. Prepared sweet-and-sour dressing is good on this salad, too. —Nancy Collins, Clearfield, Pennsylvania

  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons malt vinegar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons water
  • 1 cup frozen french-fried potatoes
  • 1/2 pound beef top sirloin steak
  • 3 cups torn iceberg lettuce
  • 1/3 cup chopped tomato
  • 1/4 cup chopped red onion
  • 1/2 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese


  1. For dressing, whisk first 4 ingredients until sugar is dissolved. Cook potatoes according to package directions.
  2. Meanwhile, place a skillet coated with cooking spray over medium heat. Add steak; cook until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 135°; medium, 140°), 5-6 minutes per side. Remove from heat; let stand 5 minutes before slicing.
  3. To serve, divide lettuce, tomato and onion between 2 plates; top with potatoes, steak and cheese. Drizzle with dressing.
