Steakhouse Wedge Salad

Steakhouse Wedge Salad

I love a good wedge salad. All the components that make up a solid wedge starts with good homemade blue cheese dressing. Top that with crispy prosciutto or bacon, fried onions, fresh cherry tomatoes and maybe more crumbled blue if you feel like it. I always like creating meals at home that people think they can only get at restaurants. Yes, there are a lot of components that go into making a Steakhouse Wedge Salad, but it’s so worth it to enjoy in your own home for a fraction of the cost.

Serve with a grilled sliced steak on the side or be a baller in the kitchen and sous vide that. I have become obsessed with my Anova Culinary Sous Vide since last month’s purchase. It’s more convenient in an odd way and it is the best steak I’ve ever had.

I sous vide a sirloin strip at 129Β°F, for 1 hour, grilled each side on super high heat for 2 minutes, sliced, sprinkled with Maldon Sea Salt and served. Total perfection.

This is a great date night meal, impressive, delicious and won’t break the bank.

Wine Pairing Recommendation: Since it was date night, we wined with some Cabernet Sauvignon from California, paired beautifully with the steak.
