Beet and Sirloin Salad
|Medium fresh beets, washed||2|
|Boneless sirloin steak, visible fat removed||1/2 pound|
|Salt||1/2 teaspoon + 2 dashes|
|Freshly ground pepper to taste|
|Mixed green salad||2 cups|
|Goat cheese (or other flavorful cheese, such as bleu)||3 ounces|
|Balsamic vinegar||4 teaspoons|
1. Place beets in a medium pot and fill with water. Cover and
cook on high heat until water starts boiling, then reduce to
medium-low and simmer until beets are tender, about 30
minutes. Drain water and let beets cool for a few minutes,
then peel and slice.
2. Meanwhile, prepare indoor or outdoor grill. Season beef with salt and pepper. Grill for 3-6 minutes on each side, or until desired degree of doneness is achieved. Let rest for 5 minutes and then slice into wide strips.
3. Portion mixed greens onto two plates, and then top each with half of the steak, beets, and goat cheese. Drizzle balsamic vinegar onto each salad and then season with a dash of salt and freshly ground pepper to taste.
