I picked up a nice looking top sirloin steak the other day at the grocery store because it was on sale. I don’t normally grill my own steak because I always feel that my Dad or Brother do it better when I go home to visit. This time I was going to challenge myself and take what I have learned by watching them and apply to this steak. It`s all about how it feels when you touch the cooking meat on the grill.
I am so happy I did because this was one of the best salads I have ever had, I couldn’t get enough! The steak turned out perfectly cooked and tender.
First I made a rub, massaged it into the steak, and let it marinate for about two hours
2 cloves of garlic chopped
Montreal steak spice
fresh ground black pepper
Mix everything thing together until its a paste and will stick to the steak when rubbed in.
Grill the steak to your liking, I like mine medium rare. Make sure to tent your steak when it comes off the grill and let it rest for about 10 mins before slicing it.
I also grilled some asparagus and green onions that I tossed with salt and olive oil. I cut them into smaller pieces and put them into the salad.
You can make the salad dressing ahead of time and it can stay in the fridge for a week or so.
2 cloves garlic
1/2 cup yogurt
1/4 light mayo
1 tsp horseradish
1 tsp Dijon mustard
2 tbs red wine vinegar
2 tbs olive oil
half of a chipotle pepper with some sauce from the can
salt and pepper to taste
In a small food processor blend the ingredients above until smooth, toss with salad. You can also drizzle some over the top when plated like I did.
The flavours are amazing – Enjoy!! xx
