New York Strip Steak Salad


New York strip steak salad


A 3-ounce serving of the best steak possible is the centerpiece of this large salad. Cook the steak on an indoor, 2-sided contact electric grill.

  • About 1 pound New York strip steak, about 1 inch thick

  • 6 cups shredded romaine lettuce

  • 1 small cucumber, peeled, seeded, and chopped

  • 4 radishes, sliced

  • 2/3 cup slivered red onion

  • 1 cup halved grape tomatoes

  • 2 ribs celery, sliced

  • 2 cups steamed and chilled broccoli florets


Heat grill to high. Rub a New York strip steak with crushed black pepper. Grill steak to desired doneness—about 5 minutes for rare (internal temperature of about 130°F) to 8 minutes for well-done (160°F). Let steak rest before slicing.

Arrange vegetables on 4 dinner plates. Spray lightly with olive oil and vinegar or use a light bottled vinaigrette dressing. Slice steak on a diagonal, trimming any fat. Divide equally among salad plates. Top with herbed horseradish cream sauce and serve.
