Sirloin Steak and Pasta Salad

Salt-free garlic-pepper seasons juicy steak. We recommend using sirloin, but using flank steak works great, too.

Cooking Light DECEMBER 2003

  • Yield: 4 servings (serving size: about 1 1/2 cups)

Ingredients

  • 2 cups uncooked penne or mostaccioli (tube-shaped pasta)
  • 1/4 pound green beans, trimmed
  • 1 (3/4-pound) boneless sirloin steak, trimmed
  • 1 tablespoon salt-free garlic-pepper blend (such as Spice Hunter)
  • 1 1/2 cups thinly sliced red onion
  • 1 1/2 cups thinly sliced red bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
  • 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon extravirgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon bottled minced garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 cup (1 ounce) crumbled blue cheese

Preparation

Preheat broiler.

While the broiler preheats, bring 3 quarts water to a boil in a large Dutch oven. Add pasta; cook 5 1/2 minutes. Add beans, and cook 3 minutes or until pasta is done. Drain and rinse with cold water. Drain well.

Sprinkle steak with the garlic-pepper blend. Place on a broiler pan; broil 3 inches from heat 10 minutes or until desired degree of doneness, turning after 5 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes. Cut steak diagonally across grain into thin slices.

Combine onion and next 8 ingredients (onion through black pepper) in a large bowl. Add pasta mixture and beef slices; toss well to coat. Sprinkle with cheese.
