the summer weather always seem to go perfectly with salads, especially ones with fruit. i have had quite the obsession with steak-salads, but have never tried making one myself, until recently… and it was surprisingly simple to make! all i did was rub sea-salt, black pepper, and applewood steak-spice into the steak; coated it with chipotle-beer barbecue sauce and let it sit in the fridge for a while before i grilled it on the barbecue. once it was grilled to perfection (medium-rare in my case, with it being more on the rare side) i cut it into pieces and tossed it into a bowl with spinach, blueberries, cut-up strawberries, avocado, and mushrooms. i made this dressing to put on it, and enjoyed my lovely homemade steak-salad in the sunshine.
the next morning, i decided to get creative with the leftovers and turn it into breakfast. this was also incredibly easy to make – all i did was make hashbrowns in a pan, tossed the steak, spinach, and mushrooms in there as well, made an egg on the side, and seasoned it all with garlic powder, rosemary, sea-salt and pepper. tip: if you don’t want to overcook your steak, put it in the microwave for a little while to heat it up instead of putting it in the pan.
