I’m crazy about an entrée salad, and in this dish I have kicked it up a notch by adding some heat. This steak salad is a crowd pleaser for sure. Here I have coated the outside with freshly ground black pepper, but leave it off if you prefer. The Creamy Horseradish Dressing is another one of my New Whole30 MAGIC ELIXIRS™ and is perfect as a dressing or served on the side as a dipping sauce with vegetables. Gooey eggs, pepperoncini, and avocado take it to the next level. Plus, of course, my Marinated Onions MAGIC ELIXIRS™.
Pepper Steak Salad with Creamy Horseradish Dressing
For the Creamy Horseradish Dressing MAGIC ELIXIRS™:
- 1 cup Whole30 compliant Mayo
- ¼ cup grated horseradish
- 1 tsp Whole30 compliant Dijon mustard
- 1 tsp red wine vinegar
- ½ tsp salt
- ¼ tsp freshly ground black pepper
- 2 Tbsps chives
For the Salad:
- 1 Bone-in Ribeye Steak
- Salt and Freshly Ground Black Pepper
- 1 Tbsps extra-virgin olive oil
- Baby lettuces
- Soft boiled eggs, cut in half
- Cherry tomatoes, sliced
- Cucumbers, sliced
- Hearts of palm, sliced
- Nicoise olives
- Radishes, sliced
- Avocado, cut into chunks
- Pepperoncinis, sliced
- Marinated Red Onions MAGIC ELIXIRS™
Preheat the oven to 400F.
Make the dressing by blending all ingredients together in a food processor.
Salt the steak thoroughly. Then, using a lot of ground black pepper, thoroughly coat the steak, pressing the pepper down into the steak.
In a large oven-safe sauté pan, sear all sides of the steak. Begin by searing the top of the steak on the stovetop for 4 minutes. Then flip it over and sear the back for 4 more minutes. Using tongs to hold the steak, sear the bone side for 1 minute and then flip and sear the opposite edge for 1 minute. Lay the steak flat in the pan and place in the oven. Cook in the oven for 10 minutes. When done, remove and place on a board to rest for 10 minutes.
Assemble your salad: first place lettuce on a platter, sprinkle with salt, and drizzle with Marinated Onion oil. Add the sliced steak to the platter, then place the remaining vegetables around beautifully and serve with the Creamy Horseradish Dressing MAGIC ELIXIRS™.
