Cheesesteak Salad

  • 1 lb. sirloin or cube steak
  • 1/2 tsp. salt, divided
  • 1/2 tsp. ground pepper, divided
  • 3 Tbsp. olive oil, divided
  • 2 oz. sliced provolone cheese
  • 1 medium red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 Tbsp. white-wine vinegar
  • 1 1/2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1 small clove garlic, grated
  • 11 oz. baby spinach
  • 1/2 cup sliced jarred roasted red peppers, rinsed and patted dry


Pat steak dry and season both sides with 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper.  Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.  Add the steak and cook. Flipping once, until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part registers 125 degrees for medium-rare, about 4-5 minutes per side.  Transfer to a cutting board, top with cheese, and let rest for 5 minutes before slicing against the grain.  Meanwhile, add onion to the pan and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned, about 5 minutes.  Whisk vinegar, Worcestershire, mustard, oregano, garlic and the remining 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper in a large bowl.  Slowly whisk in the remaining 2 tablespoons oil and any steak drippings. Add spinach and peppers and toss to coat.  Serve the salad topped with the onions and steak.
