Recipe Ingredients:

1/2 cup prepared Italian dressing
1 chipotle pepper in adobo sauce, minced
1 teaspoon adobo sauce

Steak Milanese Salad:
1 pound boneless beef round tip steaks, cut 1/4-inch thick
1 large egg
2 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, minced
1 tablespoon water
1 cup saltine cracker crumbs
3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
4 to 6 tablespoons vegetable oil
6 cups mixed salad greens
1 cucumber, seeded, sliced
1 1/2 cups diced tomatoes
Chopped cilantro

Cooking Directions:

  1. Whisk dressing ingredients in small bowl until blended. Set aside.
  2. Beat egg, chipotle peppers and water in shallow dish until blended. Combine cracker crumbs and 3 tablespoons cilantro in second shallow dish. Dip each beef steak into egg mixture, then into crumb mixture to coat both sides.
  3. Heat 2 tablespoons vegetable oil in 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium to medium-high heat until hot. Place 1 to 2 steaks in skillet. (Do not overcrowd.) Cook 3 to 4 minutes or until coating is golden brown and beef is medium rare (145°F | 62.7°C) to medium (160°F | 71.1°C) doneness, turning once. (Do not overcook.) Remove; keep warm. Repeat with remaining steaks, adding additional oil as needed and adjusting heat as necessary to prevent over browning.
  4. Divide salad greens evenly among 4 plates. Top evenly with cucumber and tomatoes. Top each with steaks. Drizzle with dressing and sprinkle with cilantro, as desired.

Makes 4 servings.

Tip: To make cracker crumbs, place crackers in food-safe plastic bag; close bag securely, squeezing out air. Crush crackers with rolling pin to form fine crumbs. It takes 28 to 30 (2x2-inch) crackers to make about 1 cup crumbs.
