How to Make It

Step 1

Place potatoes in a saucepan; cover with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium, and simmer 12 minutes or until tender; drain.

Step 2

While potatoes cook, heat a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add olive oil to pan; swirl to coat. Sprinkle steaks evenly with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Add steaks to pan; cook 3 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Remove steaks from pan; let stand 5 minutes. Cut across the grain into slices.

Step 3

Cook bacon in skillet until crisp; remove bacon from pan, reserving 1 1/2 tablespoons drippings in pan. Crumble bacon, and set aside. Add remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, remaining 1/8 teaspoon pepper, and flour to pan; cook 30 seconds, stirring constantly. Stir in vinegar, 3 tablespoons water, sugar, and mustard; cook 1 minute or until slightly thickened. Remove from heat; stir in potatoes, steak, bacon, celery, and green onions. Toss with arugula.

Wonderful!  The salad and dressing are so flavorful!  I served with the recommended haricot verts recipe!  Family loved it and am serving it at our Dinner/Wine Tasting dinner this week.

This is a go-to favorite for my husband and I. I've made it several times and each time I make it I say "Why don't I make this more often?!" It's easy to put together and it is a really delicious and satisfying meal!

This recipe has become a favorite of mine. The sauce is addicting after the first time making this I found myself craving it. Also fast and easy, this recipe is a winner.

I liked this recipe, but it didn't 'wow' me. Granted, I didn't use tenderloin because there's no way I would spend that much money on a weeknight recipe or just to slice up in a salad! That said, the steak and potatoes make a nice salad, and the dressing is very tasty. It felt a little disjointed from the greens, like it was a warm potato salad just stuck on lettuce - but, that said, it's not a bad way to eat your vegetables. :) Overall, I'd say this was yummy, but probably not something I would make again.

This was excellent especially if you are a steak salad fan, as I am. I used a 1 lb bag of fingerling microwaveable potatoes and cooked them 6 minutes in microwave instead of as in the recipe. Used a piece of steak I had in the freezer, probably a sirloin or something. Followed recipe closely. Very nice dressing--perfect with the potatoes, steak and arugula. Definitely a keeper for me.
