Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pounds marinated top round or steak tips
  • 1 large bunch red leaf lettuce washed, dried and torn
  • 1 pound asparagus washed, trimmed and blanched
  • shaved parmesan
  • raspberry vinaigrette dressing
  • optional: fresh raspberries for garnish

Instructions

  • Grill marinated steak just how you like it.
  • Remove from the grill, cover with foil and let sit for 10-15 minutes, then thinly slice.
  • Separately, place washed and trimmed asparagus flat in a frying or sauce pan. Cover with water and put the lid on.
  • Bring water to a quick boil at high heat, cooking for 3-5 minutes total, just until asparagus is bright green and a sharp knife easily pierces the center.
  • Immediately drain and quickly shock in an ice water bath to stop from cooking further.
  • (Asparagus should be tender crisp, not mushy.)
  • When cool, chop asparagus into bite size pieces.
  • Arrange salads on individual serving plates.
  • First lay a bed of red leaf lettuce on each plate.
  • Top with asparagus, shaved parmesan and steak slices.
  • Drizzle raspberry vinaigrette dressing over all.
  • Garnish with fresh raspberries if desired.

Notes

This recipe makes six generous main dish servings, allowing for 1/4 pound steak per person. You can easily use less and we often do.
