Ingredients

  • 1 pound boneless beef top sirloin steak, cut 1-inch thick
  • 3 hard-cooked eggs, sliced
  • 6 slices bacon, crisp-cooked, drained, and crumbled
  • 3 tablespoons salad oil
  • 3/4 cup crumbled blue cheese (3 ounces)
  • 1 medium avocado, pitted, peeled, and cut into wedges, or 1/2 of a small cantaloupe, peeled and cut into thin wedges
  • 1 1/2 cups halved grape tomatoes or chopped, seeded tomatoes
  • 6 cups shredded butterhead (Boston or Bibb) lettuce (about one 8-ounce head)
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano, crushed
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon-style mustard
  • 3 tablespoons white balsamic vinegar or white wine vinegar

Dijon Vinaigrette

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon-style mustard
  • 1/3 cup white balsamic vinegar or white wine vinegar
  • 1/3 cup olive oil

Instructions

  1. Preheat broiler. Place steak on the rack of an unheated broiler pan. Broil 3 inches from heat for 15 to 17 minutes or until medium doneness (160 degree F), turning once halfway through broiling. Cool slightly; cut into thin slices. Place steak slices in a resealable plastic bag set in a shallow dish; set aside.
  2. For marinade, in a screw-top jar, combine oil, vinegar, mustard, and oregano. Cover and shake well. Pour marinade over steak slices. Seal bag; turn to coat steak slices. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 6 hours or up to 24 hours, turning bag occasionally.
  3. Drain steak slices, discarding marinade. To serve, arrange shredded lettuce in a chilled large bowl. Place steak slices, tomatoes, avocado, cheese, bacon, and eggs on top of the lettuce. Drizzle some of the Dijon Vinaigrette over salad. Pass remaining Dijon Vinaigrette.

To make dijon vinaigrette

  1. In a small bowl, combine white balsamic vinegar, mustard, garlic, sugar, salt, and pepper. Add olive oil in a slow steady stream, whisking constantly. Makes about 2/3 cup.
