I found this recipe last year on, and it has become one of my favorites. The homemade dressing is fantastic! I realized today, as long as you tweak the cheese and meat to be lower fat,it's Phase I friendly!!!

The nuts honestly don't do anything for me one there, so I don't add them. Sometimes, we'll also put on boiled egg if it's the only thing we're eating for supper. YUM!!

(I also just grill the steak)

1 1/2 pounds beef sirloin steak
8 cups romaine lettuce, torn into bite-size pieces
6 roma (plum) tomatoes, sliced
1/2 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
3/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
1/4 cup walnuts

1/3 cup vegetable oil
3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
3 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1/8 teaspoon liquid smoke flavoring

Preheat oven on broiler setting. Broil steaks for 3 to 5 minutes per side, or to desired doneness. Allow to cool, then slice into bite-size pieces.
On chilled plates, arrange lettuce, tomatoes, and mushrooms. Sprinkle with blue cheese and walnuts. Top with steak slices.
In a small bowl, whisk together oil, vinegar, lemon juice, salt, pepper, Worcestershire sauce, and smoke flavoring. Drizzle over salad.

(This recipes allows for 6 oz per person of steak...but cutting down to 4 oz, and then substituting a lower fat cheese, The fat content can be cut drastically! Also, you don't need much of the dressing....)
