Steak-Peppercorn Salad

Sharing for a healthy society.

This steak-and-salad combo offers the best of both worlds, with juicy pieces of meat and plenty of vegetables. A creamy peppercorn dressing brings it all together.

Recipe: Ingredients

2 8-ounce beef eye round steaks

4 teaspoons dijon mustard

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

8 ounces white mushrooms, halved or quartered

1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese, plus more for topping

3 tablespoons low-fat sour cream

2 to 3 teaspoons brined green peppercorns, drained and chopped, plus 1 teaspoon brine from the jar

2 large romaine lettuce hearts, chopped

3 stalks celery, sliced

1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved or quartered

2 cups whole-wheat croutons


Rub the steaks all over with 1 teaspoon mustard and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and black pepper. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the steaks and cook until browned, 5 to 6 minutes per side for medium-rare. Transfer to a cutting board. Wipe out the skillet.

Heat 1 more tablespoon olive oil in the skillet. Add the mushrooms and cook, undisturbed, until golden, about 2 minutes. Season with salt and continue to cook, stirring, until just soft, 3 more minutes.

Whisk the parmesan, sour cream, 3 tablespoons water, the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil and 3 teaspoons mustard, the green peppercorns and brine, and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and black pepper in a large bowl. Add the mushrooms, lettuce, celery, tomatoes, and croutons and toss. Cut the steak into bite-size pieces; add to the bowl and toss. Divide among plates and top with more parmesan.
