Mediterranean Beef Salad with Lemon Vinaigrette
  • Servings: 6
  • 1 pound boneless beef top sirloin steak, cut 1 inch thick
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 cups torn romaine leaves
  • 1/2 of a small red onion, thinly sliced and separated into rings
  • 1 cup halved cherry or grape tomatoes

  1. Trim fat from steak. Sprinkle steak with salt and pepper. Place steak on the unheated rack of a broiler pan. Broil 3 to 4 inches from the heat until desired doneness, turning once halfway through broiling time. Allow 15 to 17 minutes for medium-rare doneness (145 degrees F) or 20 to 22 minutes for medium doneness (160 degrees F). Thinly slice steak.
  2. Divide romaine among 4 dinner plates. Top with sliced meat, red onion, tomatoes, and feta cheese. Drizzle with Lemon Vinaigrette. Makes 4 servings.
  3. Lemon Vinaigrette: In a screw-top jar combine 1/4 cup olive oil; 1/2 teaspoon finely shredded lemon peel; 3 tablespoons lemon juice; 1 tablespoon snipped fresh oregano or 1 teaspoon dried oregano, crushed; and 2 cloves garlic, minced. Cover and shake well. Season to taste with salt and black pepper. Makes about 1/2 cup.
