Sometimes a good ole steak salad is just what you need. And I guess I will use the term “good ole” loosely. I would not expect however, to find this little gem at your nearest steakhouse. But if you have had an exceptionally long day at work this baby is quick, effortless, and goes great with 1 or 2, orrr 3 glasses of your favorite red wine.

Because I “rarely” (no pun intended) eat red meat, when I do happen to crave it, it better be hella, dang, lit, or whatever you use to say “really good”. In all honesty, it could quite possibly be another 6 months before I eat it again. Personally, I just generally find myself wanting cook chicken, fish, and other leaner meats.

With the addition of the thyme roasted grapes this steak salad is a perfect combination of savory and sweet that is a super satisfying dinner. I included the lemon vinaigrette I used below! The protein content will keep you full for hours. Not to mention, it ain’t too bad on the eyes. I am always a sucker for a beautiful plate, call me vain.

What’s the deal with steak?

So is it healthy, or what? If you do some research around the web, you are going to find a lot of mixed messages. Some say it’s the worst possible thing for you, some claim that it will extend your life to 120. I always take various articles with a grain of salt. You’re welcome for the second culinary pun. Really, if you are using the golden “everything in moderation” rule, I think you will be okay. The pros  of red meat are the obvious, ample amount of provided protein. Along with that, steak provides Iron, Zinc, and an array of B-Vitamins. The way I look at it is, if I’m in the mood for it, then it’s probably for a good reason.
