Grilled Ribeye Corn and Edamame Salad with Bluecheese Dressing




      One of the biggest pro's of the warming weather is that I can get The Hubs out there on the grill, ... and he is the GRILL MASTER !!!  Its hard to ever want to go out to eat when I can have the best right here at home !!!  I lucked out with this guy  ;) ... and so did you because I will be sharing a lot more of his recipes as time goes on!  I don't know a thing about the grill ( I'm no fool, you have to be careful in a marriage because once you do something there is risk of it becoming your job)  Anyhoo, what he tells me is that after you make your pyramid of coals and get them to the red and white hot stage, then you spread them out and sear your steaks for 2 minutes on each side, close the lid and check after a few minutes ( The Hubs says you can cut off a piece to sample along the way for another way to check on level of doneness), flip and grill the other side another few minutes and check again. Also, you can test the meat for firmness, we like our beef medium rare and so the meat remains softer to touch, if you want your beef more done then your steak will be more firm to the touch.  And his biggest secret is Lawrys Seasoned Salt, it's the only spice he uses on his meats and it turns out perfectly every single time !!!  There have been times we experiment with other things, but we always return to our tried and true method.  If you have grilling tips you would like to share, I would love to hear them !!!  ;)

Ingredients for Salad~
Make a mixture of Greens of Kale, Spinach Leaves, Romaine, Green Onions, Baby Carrots, Cilantro
3oz  grilled Ribeye pieces
1/3 Cup Corn and Edamame Steamable's Vegetables
1 Tablespoon Brianna's Bluecheese Dressing
Salt and Pepper to taste

     Fill your dinner plate with mixed fresh salad. Top with steak pieces, corn and edamame, salt and pepper, and top with Bluecheese dressing. I didn't count the calories of the greens, but I'm guessing 50-75 calories at the most.  So for the beef, corn, edamame, and dressing the nutritional stats are 331 calories, 11 gms carbs, and 26.5 gms protein.  Beef is higher in calories, but also in protein.  We don't eat red meat that often, but I have no problem with it every once in a while. Again, portion control is where common sense comes in when we eat things that are a touch higher in fat and carbs than our staple diet. This salad was so full of rich flavor, you will want this once a week!!!  Enjoy  ;)
