Steak Salad with Gorgonzola


The Steak

  • 1 New York strip steak (make sure the steak is at room temperature before cooking)
  • 1 Tablespoon avocado oil or soft butter
  • salt & pepper (I don't typically measure the steak seasoning, but you will need enough to completely cover the steak. Around 1/4 teaspoon each of salt & pepper)
  • 1 healthy pinch of garlic powder *optional

Salad Ingredients

  • 2 heaping cups greens
  • 1 cup cooked corn (grilled, steamed, or even frozen corn works)
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/4 cup red onion, sliced or diced
  • 1/4 cup crumbled gorgonzola cheese can also replace with regular blue cheese
  • 1/2 avocado, sliced
  • 2 Tablespoons chopped fresh basil
Balsamic Vinaigrette
  • 1/3 cup quality olive oil
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1-2 Tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 healthy pinch salt
  • 1 healthy pinch black pepper


Preheat oven to 400F. Place a skillet pan for the steak in the oven while it preheats.

Make the dressing: in a small jar or small bowl, mix together the salad dressing ingredients. Taste and adjust with additional salt or sweetness if needed!

Make the salad: On a large salad plate or in a bowl, prepare the salad with the greens then top with halved tomatoes, red onion slices, avocado, corn, fresh basil, and crumbled gorgonzola. Set salad aside.

Prep the steak: Using either soft butter or avocado oil, use your hands to oil the steak on both sides. Then season generously with garlic powder, and salt & black pepper on both sides (if the steak is thicker, don't be shy with seasoning).

Cook the steak (for medium rare): Carefully remove the hot skillet pan from the oven and turn the burner to medium heat. Place the steak in the pan and brown for 2 minutes on both sides. Then carefully transfer the pan with the steak into the oven for several minutes, once the internal temperature of the steak is between 125-130F, remove it from the oven.

Let the steak rest: Place the steak on a cutting board and cover it with foil for 5-10 minutes, or until the internal temperature is between 135-145F. Then slice the steak and place it over the salad, drizzle with the balsamic dressing, and serve right away!
