I’ve been back in Ireland for a couple of days and I’m trying my best to “behave”.
That means eating a relatively healthy breakfast (Alpen muesli without added sugar washed down with coffee) and having lunch in the canteen at work. In the evening I’m back to cooking, so I’ve been eating plenty of fresh vegetables.
I love salads, as I’ve said before, but there’s only so many times you can have tuna .. So making a steak salad, like I did last night, makes it all a bit more interesting.
I won’t share a recipe, as it’s so simple that a recipe would be overkill.
Simply prepare a mixed salad as you would normally.
While you’re doing that your George Foreman grill can heat up.
Personally I like my meat rare to medium rare, so depending on the cut of steak the cooking time will vary from a couple of minutes to a few seconds.
SuperQuinn’s meat counter is always a good place to get a nice steak and they’re currently running an offer on steaks, so I picked up a very nice one for a couple of Euro on Sunday afternoon.
I don’t use salt in my cooking anymore, as I’m getting plenty of salt already via other foods, so I just let the steak grill in its own juices with possibly a bit of chilli or similar to give it a bit of a “kick”.
Once the steak is done it’s simply a matter of slicing it up into small, bite-size pieces and throwing them in on top of the salad bowl and giving the entire thing a mix before adding balsamic vinegar and virgin olive oil. (I was given a few small bottles of olive oil at a conference in Valencia earlier this year and it’s excellent!)
