Hot Marinated Beef Salad

As the weather is getting nicer, my wardrobe is getting lighter. So are my food cravings. Instead of the multitude of soups that we eat during the winter months - we begin to incorporate more main dish salads for supper. Evidently, my family isn't alone in this because Allyson at A Heart for Home is trying to wrangle up "A Slew of Summer Salads". If you are needing some Romaine inspiration or have a fabulous favorite salad recipe yourself, head on over to A Heart for Home and join the carnival.

Here's my contribution. It comes from the Prism Cookbook.

Hot Marinated Beef Salad:

Mixed greens (spinach, romaine, Boston, yada, yada, yada.)
1/2 lb. round steak
2 green onions, sliced
1 clove garlic, minced
1/3 c. soy sauce
1/2 tsp. salt
1 c. bean sprouts (I just use mine from a can and rinse them well.)
3 Tbsp. lemon juice
1/3 c. olive oil
Dash of pepper

Slice meat paper thin; marinate for 1 hour in garlic and soy sauce. Saute in hot oil (few slices at a time), turning to brown evenly. Toss green onions and sprouts with oil, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Arrange meat strips on top.

Makes 4 servings at 255 calories and 22 grams of fat each.

I promise that you won't be disappointed with this dish. As some of my friends down in the Sunshine State used to say, "It's sooo good it'll make you want to slap your Grandma!"



  1. That sounds delicious!

    We have been doing a lot of dinner salads since going on this dadblamed SouthBeach diet. Here's one of my current favorites: Bed of greens with sauteed, sliced chicken (or turkey breast)sprinkled with garlic powder while cooking, craisins, choppped apples (Gala), chopped walnuts and feta crumbles with Wishbone balsamic breeze salad spray. Mmmmmmm. It's like Thanksgiving in a salad.

  2. Thanks for adding this to our Slew of Summer Salads Carnival. You can just do the link again with the name of your blog and salad. I'll try to figure out how to delete the first link you made.

  3. Pam, I just figured out that I can fix it. so don't worry about a thing I'll take care of it.

    Thanks again!

  4. Sounds delish! I am always looking for great new recipes. That rooster picture is not a cabinet door, but my husband bought it for me because it looks like it is. It had some ugly pictures in it and he knew I could redo it to make it look better. I love changing it out from time to time.

  5. Pam,

    I just realized the button from our post wasn't working properly. We've corrected it and it's working now.

    Also, I noticed in your header that you are interested in natural cleaners. I have a chemical allergy (Clorox--and now,, Windex); I have 3 inhalers in my purse--wish they were lipsticks instead!
