Steakhouse Salad with Horseradish Dressing

“Flavorful steak salad topped with crunchy, oven-fried onion rings, and creamy horseradish ranch dressing.” Stephanie


1 lb flank steak

Salad greens (whatever lettuces float your boat: arugula, romaine, baby bok choy,raddiccio, etc.)

Grape tomatoes


Shaved carrots


1/4 cup tamari or soy sauce

2 tbsp olive oil

Juice of 1 lemon

1 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp onion powder

1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce

1 tbsp brown sugar

Onion Rings:

1 large sweet onion, sliced thick and broken out into rings

1/4 cup flour, plus 1 tbsp

1 tsp seasoned salt

1/4 to 1/3 cup buttermilk

1 to 2 cups panko bread crumbs

Cooking spray

Horseradish Dressing

1/4 cup sour cream

1/4 cup mayonnaise

1/3 cup buttermilk

2 tsp prepared horseradish

1 large green onion, thinly sliced

2 tsp fresh lemon juice

1 small palm-full fresh parsley, chopped

1/2 tsp kosher salt, or to taste

8 to 10 turns of fresh cracked pepper, or to taste


Marinate the steak:

Combine all of the marinade ingredients in a large reseal able plastic bag.

Seal the bag and squish the ingredients together a bit to combine.

Place the steak in the bag and reseal, pressing out all the air.

Let the steak rest on the counter for at least an hour, or place it on a plate and refrigerate up to 24 hours.

Allow the steak to rest at room temperature for an hour before cooking.


Whisk all the dressing ingredients together in a medium bowl.

Pour into an air-tight container, and refrigerate until ready to use.

For the onion rings:

Preheat the oven to 450.

Line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray lightly with a bit of cooking spray.

Combine the 1/4 cup of flour and seasoned salt, then whisk in the buttermilk until it's about 
the consistency of pancake batter.

Toss the onion rings in a medium with the remaining flour until lightly coated.

Place the panko crumbs in a large bowl.

Take a couple of floured onion rings and dunk them in the batter, coating them completely.

Allow the excess to drip off, and then drop the onion rings into the panko.

Toss the panko lightly to coat the onion rings, and then move the onion rings to the baking 
sheet, arranging them so there's room between each ring.

Continue with the rest of the onions until they are all coated.

Bake until golden brown and crunchy, about 12 to 15 minutes.

For the steak:

Heat a little vegetable oil (about a tbsp) in a large, heavy skillet over high heat until lightly 

 Add the steak to the pan and cook without moving for about four minutes, then turn the 
steak and continue to cook, again without moving it, for another 3 to 4 minutes.

Transfer the meat to a cutting board or plate, and tent loosely with foil. Let the meat rest for 
5 to 10 minutes.

To serve:

Pile up a bit of salad on each plate.

Top each salad with sliced steak and onion rings.

Serve with the horseradish dressing and a bit of fresh cracked pepper on top.


The steak will give off a fair amount of smoke, so make sure you open a window or turn on 
your ventilation fan to high (or both).

Crispy Curried New Potatoes

“These are some kind of wonderful.” Stephanie


1 ½ pounds new potatoes, evenly sized

1/3 cup vegetable oil

1 small yellow onion, thinly sliced

1 teaspoon curry powder

2 tbsp kosher salt, plus more for seasoning

Yogurt Sauce:

3oz plain fat free Greek-style yogurt

¼ cup lite coconut milk

2 tsp fresh lime juice

1 clove garlic, crushed to a paste

1 tbsp chopped cilantro

½ to 1 tsp crushed red pepper, based on your heat tolerance

Kosher salt, to taste

For the yogurt sauce:

Combine the ingredients in a small bowl.

Taste for seasoning, and add salt to taste.

Cover and refrigerate until ready (I'd suggest making this ahead of time so the flavors can 

For the potatoes:

In a large saucepan, cover the potatoes with water, and add the 2tbsp of salt.

Bring to a boil, and cook until the potatoes are very soft, and pierce easily.

Drain the potatoes, and transfer them to a baking sheet.

Use the bottom of a measuring cup to flatten each potato to equal thickness, about 1/2 an 
inch each.

Over medium-high heat, heat the oil in a large skillet and fry the onions, stirring often, until 
brown and crispy (but don't let them burn!).

Remove to a small plate lined with a paper towel, and set aside.

Sprinkle the curry powder into the remaining oil and give it a stir, then carefully lay the 
smashed potatoes in the pan.

Let them cook undisturbed until browned and crunchy, then flip and repeat to brown the 
other side, about 4 minutes on each side.

Remove the cooked potatoes to a plate lined with crumpled paper towels and sprinkle with a few pinches of salt.

Fry the potatoes in batches if necessary.

To serve, sprinkle the fried onions over the potatoes, and top with the yogurt sauce.
