Grilled Steak & Berry Salad with Goat Cheese


Makes 4 servings

1 pound Top Sirloin Steak, 1-inch thick
4 romaine lettuce hearts, cut in half
Kosher salt and black pepper
12 ounces blueberries, washed
16 ounces strawberries, washed, stemmed and sliced
½ cup Balsamic Glaze
4 ounces goat cheese, crumbled
Olive oil


Total Recipe Time: 25-30 Minutes

1. Season steak with salt and pepper on both sides. Place steak in center of grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill steak, covered, 11 to 15 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, 13 to 16 minutes) for medium rare (145°F) to medium (160°F) doneness, turning occasionally.

2. Rub the cut sides of the lettuce hearts with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill romaine, cut-side down, for 2 to 3 minutes per side, or until charred and leaves begin to wilt.

3. To serve, place the romaine hearts, cut-side up on a plate and top with berries, steak slices, crumbed goat cheese and drizzle with Balsamic Glaze.

Cook’s tip:
To make Balsamic Glaze, add 1-cup balsamic vinegar and 2 teaspoons brown sugar to a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce to a very low simmer and cook for 10-15 minutes, until liquid is reduced by about half and is slightly syrupy. Remove from heat; set aside to cool and thicken.
