Working Girl Cooks: Steak Salad

When I said Working Girl Cooks would be a bi-weekly feature what I meant to say was it would be a when WG1 remembers to take pictures while she cooks and isn't embarrassed to do so in-front of her roommates feature.

I remembered to take some photos and explained to my roommates what I was doing last week when I cooked one of my favorite meals: steak salad. Three things I love are spinach, steak and goat cheese. And that's all I need for this dish for one. Oh and balsamic vinaigrette, salt and pepper.

First I cooked a small steak that I picked up at Whole Foods. When I buy steak I just buy the cheapest piece I can find. I don't know if it's skirt steak, flank steak, whatever. I like meat and I like it cheap.
I seasoned with salt and pepper.


While the steak cooked (about 10 min, 5 min on each side) I tossed the spinach salad in the balsamic dressing.


Once the steak was cooked medium rare, I sliced into thin pieces and added it to the top of the salad. I also added goat cheese. Because a Working Girl One salad isn't a salad if it doesn't have goat cheese.

Looks tasty! My favorite is spinach, balsamic vinaigrette, goat cheese, walnuts, sunflower seeds, and blueberries :) Some BBQ salmon is always good on it as well.

Yum! That looks AH-MAZING! I'm making home made English muffins tonight for a post on my blog. It's so hard to be a worker, blogger AND cooker, isn't it?

Looks very yummy. I'd add some corn, tomatoes, carrots, etc. just to bulk it up a bit.

Or you know what's also a great combo? Spinach, goat cheese, and strawberries. Try it, it's really good!

That looks so good. I'm trying to get better at cooking this year and my kitchen space is very limited as well as my budget :)

Looks great! I hardly ever have the time to cook properly, it's usually just quick cheats or bung some chips in the oven.
