Set the steak to marinate in the dressing the night before or early in the morning before leaving for work.


uncooked lean and trimmed beef strip sirloin

12 oz, steak, 3⁄4-inch thick, trimmed of all visible fat

Fresh Choice® Dressings Fat Free Italian (2 Tbsp)

8 Tbsp, or other brand

black pepper

¼ tsp, freshly ground

iceberg lettuce

16 oz

reduced-fat feta cheese

¼ cup(s), crumbled

fat-free packaged croutons

½ cup(s), seasoned


  1. Combine the steak with 1⁄4 cup of the dressing in a zip-close plastic bag. Squeeze out the air and seal the bag; turn to coat the steak. Refrigerate, turning the bag occasionally, at least 30 minutes or up to overnight.
  2. Spray the broiler rack with nonstick spray. Preheat the broiler.
  3. Remove the steak from the marinade; discard the marinade. Sprinkle the steak with the pepper and place on the broiler rack. Broil 4 inches from the heat until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the center of the steak registers 145°F for medium-rare, 3–4 minutes on each side. Let stand 2–3 minutes, then thinly slice.
  4. Meanwhile, combine the iceberg salad, cheese, and croutons in a large bowl. Add the remaining 1⁄4 cup dressing; toss to coat. Serve the sliced steak with the salad. Yields 1⁄2 of steak and 3 cups salad per serving.


When you get home, all you need do is broil the steak and toss the salad and you’ll have this one-bowl dinner on the table in minutes.If you prefer your steak cooked to medium, leave it under the broiler until the instant-read thermometer inserted in the center of the steak registers 160°F, about 3 minutes longer. After each use, be sure to wash the stem section of the meat thermometer thoroughly in hot, soapy water.
