Craving a little red meat but don’t feel like serving up a big t-bone? Try this leaner cut and serve it on greens with a delish vinaigrette.

This recipe from Clean Eating magazine was a big hit with the hubs and at just 250-ish calories a serving I justified the fat (10ish, but low saturated fat) by all the vitamins and the delish flavor.

**NOT my pic. But you get the idea.


Lean steak salad with spinach, red onion, shredded carrots and edamame

serves 2

cooking spray
1 1/2 tsp red or white wine vinegar
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 tsp Dijon mustard
1/4 tsp salt, divided
1/4 tsp pepper, divided
2 1/2 tsp extra-virgin olive oil
6 oz boneless top sirloin steak
6 cups lightly packed baby spinach
1/2 small carrot, shredded
1/4 cup shelled edamame (thawed if frozen)
2 tsp red onion, thinly sliced

ONE: Preheat broiler, coat cooking sheet or pan with cooking spray and arrange pan about 4 inches from top of oven.

TWO: In a small bowl, whisk together vinegar, garlic, mustard, 1/8 tsp salt and 1/8 tsp pepper. Slowly whisk in oil. Set dressing aside/

THREE: Sprinkle steak with remaining salt and pepper. Place steak on pan and cook 4 minutes per side for medium rare or 6 minutes per side for medium; set aside to rest 5 minutes.

FOUR: Meanwhile, toss spinach, carrot, edamame and onion with 1/2 dressing; divide salad to two plates.

FIVE: Slice steak across the grain into the slices; divide steak among two plates of salad. Drizzle remaining dressing and serve.
