Sirloin Steak Antipasto Salad
Juicy grilled sirloin steak makes the perfect addition to this light and crispy Mediterranean-style salad. Featuring the colors of crunchy romaine lettuce, kalamata olives, artichoke hearts, cherry tomatoes and fresh basil, it’s as pleasing to the eye as it is to the palate.

Ingredients
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 beef top sirloin steak (about 1 pound and 3/4 inch thick), trimmed of fat
8 cups torn romaine lettuce
16 cherry tomatoes, halved
16 pitted kalamata olives, halved lengthwise
1 can (14 ounces) quartered artichoke hearts in water, rinsed and drained
1/3 cup fat-free Italian or Caesar salad dressing
1/4 cup fresh basil, cut into thin strips

Directions
1 – Prepare grill for direct cooking or preheat broiler. Sprinkle garlic and pepper over steak.

2 – Grill steak over medium-hot coals or broil 4 inches from heat 4 minutes per side for medium-rare or until desired doneness. Transfer steak to cutting board; tent with foil. Let stand at least 5 minutes.

3 – Meanwhile, combine lettuce, tomatoes, olives, and artichoke hearts in large bowl. Add dressing; toss well. Transfer to four plates.

4 – Cut steak crosswise into thin slices; arrange over salads. Drizzle juices from cutting board over steak. Sprinkle with basil.

Tip: Beef top sirloin steak is a versatile cut of meat that can be grilled, broiled or cooked in a skillet. When cooking steaks, use a spatula or tongs to prevent the loss of meat juices.

Yield: 4 servings.

Ground Bison Meatground-bison-meat

Most times a recipe using ground meat cautions you to drain it as part of the preparation instructions. This is because of the fat content of the meat. In addition to being unhealthy, what you are draining is uneconomical. You’re pouring money down the drain, literally. With Ground Bison Meat from SayersBrook Bison Ranch, you won’t have this problem. In fact, we recommend that you spray your fry pan or skillet with a non-stick spray. It’s the good old American custom of getting what you pay for. Conveniently packaged in 1 lb units, Ground Bison Meat can be used in any recipe calling for beef. Now, you can make chili, lasagna, or your favorite casserole with a red meat that is over 90% lean. One serving (1/3 lb) of ground bison contains 3.6 g fat, 216 calories, 0 g carbs and 25 g of protein. 4 lbs Ground Bison Meat in 4 (1 lb) packages.
The Secret weapon in your fight against fat. 4 lbs Ground Bison Meat in 4 (1 lb) packages.

Grilled Caesar Salad with Smoked Buffalo Italian Sausage
By: Jill O’Brien

 

Recently, our in-house artisan sausage maker has come up with our latest, Wild Idea Buffalo product, Smoked Italian Sausage with Mozzarella. I was in love at first bite! With the grilling season in full swing, I thought it would make a great topping for a grilled Caesar salad. I modified my traditional Caesar dressing by adding ground fennel, which is fantastic, and added a layer of tomatoes. This will be a favorite ranch, summer, go to recipe! I hope you like it too.

 
Ingredients: 2 servings

Preparation:
1) Pre-heat grill to medium heat, about 350°.
2) Place Romaine halves on a baking sheet or platter and drizzle each with a tablespoon of oil. Season with a little salt and pepper.
3) Place the tomato slices on plates, drizzle with the remaining oil, and sprinkle with a little salt and pepper.
4) Place the sausages on the grill, and grill for two minutes with the grill lid closed.
5) Add the Romaine halves and turn the sausages, close the grill lid and grill for another 2 minutes. Turn the Romaine hearts, rotate sausages, and grill for 2 more minutes.
6) Remove sausages and Romaine hearts from the grill, placing the grilled Romaine on top of the tomatoes.
7) Slice the sausages and place on top of the grilled Romaine.
8) Spoon desired amounts of Caesar dressing over the salad and top with shaved Parmesan. Serve with toasted croutons.
