Pepper-crusted steak, grill-charred vegetables and sesame-ginger dressing turn fresh salad greens into an exciting main course.


Grilled Sirloin Salad

Ingredients

  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh ginger
  • 2 teaspoons black peppercorns, crushed
  • 1 12-ounce sirloin steak, trimmed
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 16 scallions, white part only
  • 1 red bell pepper, halved lengthwise and seeded
  • 2 cups torn salad greens, such as escarole, curly endive, radicchio or watercress

Preparation

  1. Preheat grill to high.
  2. Combine garlic, soy sauce, vinegar, oil, brown sugar and ginger in a blender or food processor; blend until smooth. Set aside.
  3. Press peppercorns into both sides of sirloin. Season with salt. Place the sirloin, scallions and bell pepper halves on the grill and cook for 4 minutes. Turn over and cook until the meat is medium-rare and the vegetables are slightly charred, about 4 minutes more.
  4. Let sirloin rest for 5 minutes, then slice thinly, against the grain. Cut scallions into 1-inch pieces. Slice the pepper lengthwise into strips.
  5. Toss greens with the reserved dressing in a large bowl. Arrange on a platter or 4 plates. Top with sirloin and grilled vegetables. Serve immediately.
