Philly Steak Salad

What do you get when you combine healthy salad, great steak, and delicious cheese? A cheese steak salad! I happen to have a freezer full of steaks, so this dish helps me work through them. Though the recipe calls for leftover steak, you can, of course, cook the steak specifically for this salad, as I did. Once cooked, either slice thin or grate your steak. Heat a large skillet with olive oil over medium-high heat. Cook your peppers with the steak and garlic powder for about five minutes. Turn the heat off and smother the still-hot steak and peppers with the shredded mozzarella. While this is melting, split the bag of lettuce between two plates or bowls. Add the cheese-covered steak onto the salads and you're ready to eat!The ingredients for Food Network's Easy Philly Steak Salad are:
  • one cup of fresh, diced red and green bell peppers
  • a six to eight ounce steak per person, cooked, sliced or shredded
  • a quarter teaspoon of garlic powder
  • one cup of shredded mozzarella cheese
  • a 10-ounce bag of salad mix
