BBQ Steak Salad for the Husband

BBQ Marinade for the Flank Steak

1 2-3 lbs flank steak
1 TB Liquid Smoke
1/4 cp. BBQ sauce
1/2 cp. oil
1/2 cp. soy sauce
3 TB steak sauce
3 TB red wine vinegar
1. Whisk this together and pour over a 2-3 lb. flank steak. Let sit over night.
2. Grill 4-5 minutes on each side. Let rest for 10 minutes

Bag of good Onion Rings

3. Bake on 415 for 25 minutes. Turn half way through......Make sure they are really crispy.

Lettuce (Red Leaf, Green Mix)
1 Carrot, Shredded
2 cp. Cheddar Cheese
12 cherry tomatoes, cut in half
1/2 cucumber diced
1/2 red onion
3 ears of corn cut from the cob

4. Mix all together in a large bowl., except the cheese. Top with the grilled steak and Onion rings. Add the cheese to the top. For the dressing: I usually add a little BBQ sauce into a little ranch. My husband does not like Ranch and uses Italian dressing. It depends on what you favor.

I must admit this is one of my favorites. I love huge salads with fries or onion rings. I am from close to the PA area where they put french fries on everything. This is so good and refreshing......



  1. What a flavorful marinade! This sounds fabulous.

  2. This sounds great...I read recently that due to the popularity in Japan for fajita's there is a shortage for flank steak in our country, so I guess we all need to move to Texas where I am from, because its cheaper and abundant, lol

    I now need to make this ASAP...

  3. A healthy salad with a few slices of protein to give it a nice flavor. I like the sound of the marinade you use. I need to get me some liquid smoke. =)

  4. That marinade sounds awesome!

  5. Yuuuuum...this sounds like a PERFECT summer salad!! My hubby won't touch Ranch either, but I wonder if I concealed it as being a "BBQ" dressing if he'd notice ;) ;) ;)

  6. This sound so Delicious I going to make this soon:)
