Sirloin Caesar Salad

Its summertime! I thought summer weather would never get here. Early spring here in the Northeast was still a bit cool. Now the heat is catching up to the calendar!
Throw open the windows and air out the stuffiness leftover from winter. I’m ready for the long days. More time to spend outside.

My first summer ritual is going barefoot. I love the feel of cool grass under my feet. Taking in the sunshine and enjoying a cool breeze as it passes by.

I have most of the summer off from work. That doesn’t mean I get bored. I make sure to have time to garden and hike the trails.

One way I do that is to break the bond to my oven. Time to get out the grill and start cooking! Grilling delivers intense flavor in a minimal amount of time.

Can we share a little #grilltalk between friends?

Does grilling your entire meal appeal to you? Maybe you’re more of a steak and potatoes kind of grill lover.
There are times when I can go for a grilled steak, baked potato and some fire-roasted corn on the cob.

Other times a steak salad sounds like a great idea.

Either way, it’s the meat that makes the meal.

Have you ever tried Certified Angus Beef ® brand?

If you are looking for an exceptional steak or burger experience, trust Certified Angus Beef ® brand.

Only 1 in 4 Angus cattle meets the brand’s high standards. Certified Angus Beef ® brand was founded in 1978 by members of the American Angus Association. It’s on an entirely different level. It defines the standard by which all beef is measured. No shortcuts and with a virtual obsession with flavor and juiciness.
According to the website, this group of farmers who, in the 1970s, got together and said collectively, “We can do better. We can produce beef that’s extremely tender, juicier and always packed with flavor.”

They then proceeded to set the standards that have become the true mark of quality of an Angus brand. The Certified Angus Beef ® brand.

What makes Certified Angus Beef ® brand different from other Angus beef on the market?

The Certified Angus Beef ® brand has 10 exacting standards that every cut must meet for unrivaled flavor, juiciness and tenderness. These standards assure consumers of the best Angus beef available.

  • Marbling and Maturity

Modest or higher marbling – for the taste that ensures customer satisfaction
Medium or fine marbling texture – the white “flecks of flavor” in the beef that ensure consistent flavor and juiciness in every bite

  • Consistent Sizing

  • Quality Appearance and Tenderness

Learn more about these 10 exacting standards, here .

Time to start grilling!

  • Start your seasoned steaks on a preheated hot grill (500° to 550°).
  • When do you flip the meat? After a couple minutes, once juices begin to rise to the surface, use tongs to flip steaks over. Avoid using a meat fork. Pierce the steak as little as possible, just to check the temperature.
  • Check the temperature: 140° rare 145° medium-rare 160° medium 170° to 180° well done
  • Remove steaks when temperature reaches 5 to 10 degrees lower than desired doneness on a quick read thermometer. As your steak rests for about 5 minutes off the heat, it will continue cooking and reach desired doneness.
  • Remember to slice your steaks on a bias against the grain. Slicing meat this way produces tender bites without making “stringy” pieces.

Like those diamond marks on steaks? Here is a video that shows you how.

I’ve found that by using a Caesar based rub on the steaks adds another layer of great garlicky Caesar flavor!

Double dipping the onion rings makes them so crunchy!

Don’t forget to rest your steak for a few minutes before slicing.
