  • 1 pound boneless beef top sirloin steak, cut 1-inch thick

  • 3 tablespoon salad oil

  • 3 tablespoon white balsamic vinegar or white wine vinegar

  • 2 teaspoon Dijon-style mustard

  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano, crushed

  • 6 cup shredded butterhead (Boston or Bibb) lettuce (about one 8-ounce head)

  • 1 ½ cup halved grape tomatoes or chopped, seeded tomatoes

  • 1 medium avocado, pitted, peeled, and cut into wedges, or 1/2 of a small cantaloupe, peeled and cut into thin wedges

  • ¾ cup crumbled blue cheese (3 ounces)

  • 6 slices bacon, crisp-cooked, drained, and crumbled

  • 3 hard-cooked eggs, sliced

  • 1 recipe Dijon Vinaigrette (see recipe below)

Dijon Vinaigrette

  • cup white balsamic vinegar or white wine vinegar

  • 1 teaspoon Dijon-style mustard

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • ½ teaspoon sugar

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • cup olive oil


  1. Preheat broiler. Slash fat edges of steak at 1-inch intervals, being careful not to cut into the meat. 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. Makes 6 servings.
