What better way to elevate a salad than topping it with protein-packed slices of sirloin steak? Fresh vegetables, two grass-fed sirloins, and a few other ingredients are all you need to make this exceptional salad. This recipe certainly reflects the importance of quality ingredients. The ingredients are simply seasoned so their natural flavors come through beautifully.
- Olive oil
- 1 large red bell pepper, diced
- 2 half-inch thick grass fed organic sirloin steaks
- Sea salt
- Black pepper
- 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
- 1 large avocado, peeled pitted and diced
- ½ cup halved sugar snap peas
- 3 cups chopped lettuce
- Drizzle a tablespoon of oil into a large skillet and heat over medium.
- Add the diced bell pepper to the skillet and cook while stirring for about 2 minutes or until tender yet crisp. You can also roast the bell pepper over a flame or under the broiler for another dimension of flavor.
- Remove from the skillet and set aside.
- Add another tablespoon of oil to the same skillet and heat over high. The pan needs to be hot to get a nice exterior crust on the steaks.
- Meanwhile, season both sides of each steak with salt and black pepper.
- Place the steaks into the skillet and cook for 2 minutes per side for medium-rare steaks, 3 minutes per side for medium or 4 minutes per side for well done.
- Transfer steaks to a platter and set aside to rest for 5 minutes. This helps retain their juices.
- Whisk the lime juice and two tablespoons of olive oil in a small bowl.
- Combine the red bell pepper, avocado, sugar snap peas, and lettuce in a large salad bowl. Drizzle the vinaigrette over the salad and toss.
- Slice the steak.
- Top the salad with the steak.
- Serve. Enjoy!
