Marinating sirloin in an Italian balsamic vinegar mixture results in tasty and tender strips of beef.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 envelope (0.7 ounce) Italian dressing mix
  • 1 tablespoon olive or vegetable oil
  • 1-pound beef boneless sirloin steak, 1 to 1 1/2 inches thick
  • 4 cups fresh baby salad greens
  • 2 cups bite-size pieces arugula leaves
  • 2 roma (plum) tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups sliced baby portabella mushrooms (4 ounces)
  • 3/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (3 ounces)
  • 2/3 cup Caesar-flavored croutons

Directions

  • 1
    Mix vinegar and water in small bowl. Stir in dressing mix. Stir in oil. Divide dressing mixture in half.
  • 2
    Place beef in shallow glass or plastic dish or heavy-duty resealable plastic food-storage bag. Pour half of the dressing mixture over beef; turn beef to coat. Cover dish or seal bag and refrigerate at least 2 hours. Cover and refrigerate remaining dressing.
  • 3
    Heat coals or gas grill for direct heat. Remove beef from marinade; reserve marinade. Cover and grill beef 4 to 5 inches from medium heat 15 to 20 minutes, turning and brushing with marinade occasionally, until desired doneness. Discard any remaining marinade. Cut beef into 3x 1/4-inch slices.
  • 4
    Divide salad greens, arugula, tomatoes and mushrooms among 4 plates. Top with beef; drizzle with remaining dressing. Sprinkle with cheese and croutons.

Expert Tips

  • Regular white mushrooms can be substituted for the baby portabella mushrooms. Any type of lettuce or greens can be used to make this salad.
  • The beef can be marinated up to 24 hours ahead of time. The other perishable ingredients can be prepared as directed up to 24 hours ahead of time, too; just cover and store each separately.
  • Baby portabella mushrooms look almost identical to the more common button mushroom in size and shape, but portabellas have a brown exterior. They are very similar in flavor and texture.
