steak, sugar snap pea and barley salad

After marinating, steak can be grilled or broiled to perfection before being added to this fresh salad.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound beef Top Round Steak, cut 1-inch thick
  • 1/4 cup prepared lowfat vinaigrette
  • 2 cups fresh sugar snap peas
  • 2 cups cooked barley
  • 1 cup yellow and red grape or teadrop tomatoes, halved
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • DRESSING
  • 1/4 cup prepared lowfat vinaigrette
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Directions

  1. Combine Gremolata Dressing ingredients in small bowl until well blended, refrigerate until ready to use.
  2. Place beef steak and 1/4 cup vinaigrette in food-safe plastic bag; turn steak to coat. Close bag securely and marinate in refrigerator 6 hours or as long as overnight, turning occasionally.
  3. Bring water to boil in large saucepan. Add peas; cook 2 to 3 minutes until crisp-tender. Drain; rinse under cold water. Combine peas, cooked barley and tomatoes in large bowl; toss with dressing and set aside.
  4. Remove steak from marinade; discard marinade. Combine minced garlic and 1 teaspoon pepper; press evenly onto steak. Place steak on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, covered, about 12 to 14 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, 16 to 19 minutes) for medium rare (145°F) doneness, turning once. (Do not overcook.)
  5. Carve steak into thin slices, season with salt, as desired. Add steak slices to barley mixture.

    Test Kitchen Tips:
    To broil, place steak on rack in broiler pan so surface of beef is 2 to 3 inches from heat. Broil 17 to 18 minutes for medium rare doneness, turning once. (Do not overcook.).
