Ingredients

  • 1 pound beef top sirloin steak (1 inch thick)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 packages (6 ounces each) fresh baby spinach
  • 1 cup chopped sweet red pepper
  • 3/4 cup chopped tomatoes
  • 1/3 cup chopped red onion
  • 1/3 cup ranch salad dressing
  • 2 tablespoons picante sauce
  • 1 teaspoon taco seasoning

Directions

  1. Sprinkle steak with salt and pepper. Grill steak, covered, over medium heat for 8-10 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 135°; medium, 140°; medium-well, 145°).
  2. Meanwhile, combine the spinach, red pepper, tomatoes and onion; divide among four serving plates. In a small bowl, combine the salad dressing, picante sauce and taco seasoning. Slice steak against the grain; arrange over salads. Drizzle with dressing.
