This was a hit in my house! My husband loved the meal. I used goat cheese instead and sauteed the onion and red pepper before use. Instead of sirloin, I broiled flank steak. We love veggies, so I added frozen corn with the green beans and it made for rich color and flavor. Delish!
Sirloin Steak and Pasta Salad
Salt-free garlic-pepper seasons juicy steak. We recommend using sirloin, but using flank steak works great, too.
