When I am trying to eat a little healthier, shredded chicken salads are my go-to lunch. However, after a few days of salad-eating, I have to mix it up. I decided to add STEAK to my salad and it was the best decision ever.
Even if it’s too cold outside to fire up the grill, don’t worry. You can still make a delicious steak indoors on your stove top. I would highly recommend getting a good grill pan – that always makes “indoor grilling” a breeze.
The great thing about this recipe is you can add whatever fresh vegetables you want – if you like it, add it. Make this salad work for you.

how to make Steak Cobb Salad
Step 1: In a large skillet or grill pan, melt butter over medium-high heat.
Step 2: Brush each side of the steak with olive oil and season with salt and pepper as desired.
Step 3: Add steak to the preheated skillet and cook for 4-5 minutes or until golden brown and slightly charred.
Step 4: Flip the steak and continue to grill for 4-5 minutes for medium rare, 5-7 minutes for medium, or 8-10 minutes for medium-well.
Step 5: Transfer steaks to a plate and keep covered for 5 minutes with aluminum foil. Cut steaks into bite-sized pieces.
Step 6: To assemble salads, place about 2 cups of lettuce on each plate. Top with cooked steak, eggs, tomatoes, cheese, cucumber, red bell pepper, and green bell pepper.
Step 7: Serve with your favorite salad dressing. One of our favorite salad dressings is from the Chick Fil A Copycat Superfood Side Dish.
what else could i add to my steak cobb salad?
The thing I love about this salad, is that the possibilities are endless. Here are a few of my favorite salad toppings you could add:
–Croutons. I love having a crunch in my salad.
– Olives. I love the delicious and simple taste olives give salads.
–Jalapenos. My husband loves a little kick to his salads. I on the other hand like my salads mild.
–Seasonings. I love putting an All Seasoned Salt on my salads. I also like fresh cracked pepper on it.
–Onions. I love the little zest an onion brings to a salad. I prefer red onion on mine.
–Banana Peppers. These pickled peppers taste so good with the fresh taste of lettuce. The spice up any salad.
–Bacon. My husband always loves a little crumbled bacon on his salad. Whether it’s bacon bits in a bag from the store, or some freshly cooked bacon he didn’t finish that morning for breakfast.
Meat is meat and it’s delicious on salads.
don’t like steak? here are some other options:
If you are not a steak lover, don’t panic. You could always go without it or add some sweet pork, grilled chicken, salmon or ground beef.
Adjust your salad to how you like it.
One thing I do when we grill chicken or steak, is buy a few extra to grill up, then I use them on salads throughout the week, or make this for dinner when I am in a time crunch.
what kind of steak works best for this salad?
For this particular salad, you want a steak that will stay juicy. You can also cut your steak into thin slices, which we also highly recommend. But again, it depends on the steak you use.
For this salad, we prefer using a New York strip steak, ribeye, or filet mignon. You could use really use any type of steak, but be careful as you cook it.
You don’t want it dry (unless you like it well done). I prefer my steak somewhere between medium and medium well.
This means it is dark pink in some areas, but never dripping with blood. It’s easy to chew and tastes delicious.
We don’t recommend using beef stew meat, or other forms of beef like that for this recipes. They are difficult to chew and don’t mix well with the salad. We recommend sticking to steak.
