Sirloin Steak and Mango Salad

Sirloin Steak And Mango Salad

A word of caution: this dish is for mango lovers only. The instant thought of mouthwateringly sweet delicious mangoes has us imagining a glass filled to the brim with a rich mango lassi, sipping it greedily in the summer heat… Has anyone created a Paleo-friendly mango lassi? If so, we are on the hunt to find it! In the meantime, we will surrender ourselves to a refreshing banana mango coconut smoothie. Simply ambrosial!

Outside of searching high and low for ripe exotic fruit, you’ll also find yourself hunting down the most local grass-fed beef you can find. Sirloin steaks are best when they are pan-seared, which is fine if you are cooking inside and/or if you don’t have a grill. However, if you are cooking outside over hot embers, we have a couple of quick tips for grilling the perfect sirloin steak: for starters, let the steak come to room temperature before cooking – remove it from the fridge about 30 minutes before you plan to cook. Secondly, if you are about to grill a thick sirloin steak with a strip of nourishing fat on the side, sear that part first by holding it over the highest heat with a pair of tongs. And don’t overcook the steak! Medium-rare is a good standard to shoot for.

Combine slices of sirloin steak and fresh mango over a bed of diverse, mixed greens and all will be right in your world, if only for the duration of a meal.
