So delicious and super healthy. The secret here is the dressing. I did my own version of a Chimichuri sauce, which is a super garlicky Argentinian steak sauce. By using oregano and rosemary instead of cilantro, the dressing had a much more herby flavor but still had the awesome garlic kick. You really can use any cut of steak, I’d go with whatever is on sale at the time. Flank steak is always a good choice. Also, if you have a real grill go ahead and fire it up, but I cooked this on a George Forman grill and it came out wonderful.
Grilled Steak Salad with Chimichuri Dressing.
For the steak:
3/4 lb steak
salt and pepper
1 tsp garlic powder
2 tbs Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp olive oil
For the salad:
1 small package mixed greens
1/2 pint grape tomatoes
1/2 can canellini beans
1/2 avocado sliced into cubes
For the dressing:
1/3 cup olive oil
1 tbs finely chopped oregano
1/2 tbs finely chopped rosemary
1 pinch salt
2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
1. Coat the steak in the Worcestershire and olive oil. Sprinkle garlic powder, salt and pepper on both sides and leave out to marinate for about 30 minutes (if longer, put in the fridge).
2. Chop up the avocado and cut the tomatoes in half. Drain the canellini beans and add these ingredients to the greens in a large bowl.
3. To make the dressing, add the finely chopped herbs and garlic to the olive oil and salt to taste. If you have a food processor, throw the oregano, rosemary and garlic in it together, remove the paste and add it to the olive oil and salt. Note: I adore garlic, but remember you are using raw garlic here and may want to use much less that I did…if you don’t think you can handle it.
4. Fire up your grill and cook the steak evenly…about 3-4 minutes on each side. I think I left mine on a little too long and got more of a medium well, your goal should be just plain medium.
5. Take the steak off as soon as it’s done, let it rest for a few minutes and then slice into long strips. Add that to the salad and pour the dressing all over. Ohh sooo good if you add fresh ground pepper.
