If you love the Tri Tip Steak at Cubby’s than you will love this recipe. And if you have never been to Cubby’s but love a good steak salad, that you need to give this one a try. You will love the lemon cilantro vinaigrette.
Many of you know that I spend a lot of time in Provo, Utah. When I visit my kids there we love to go out to eat. And one place we always visit for lunch is Cubby’s. Their food is great and they have some good options for my gluten free/dairy free girl, including their yummy salads. I usually end up with a salad too. And my favorite is their Tri Tip Steak Salad.
I decided I would try and recreate it at home. The salad is made up of all kinds of yummy goodness: Roasted red peppers, tomatoes, green onions, toasted almonds, dried cherries and Blue Cheese.
The salad is topped with slices of tri tip steak and a lemon cilantro vinaigrette.
This is a great salad to have when you have left over tri -tip or any cut of beef/steak. I found a little bit of a shortcut though when you are in the mood for a good salad and you don’t have leftover meat. I discovered that Costco carries this amazing fully cooked sliced beef. It has only been seasoned with salt and pepper. It comes in slices and then I just cut it into strips and topped my salad with it. So easy and delicious! It comes in a bag and is in the deli section. It is different than the deli sliced roast beef for sandwiches. This is thicker, like slices of a roast. So technically I guess it wasn’t tri tip but it still was good!!
We ate this steak salad twice last week we liked it so much!
So for all you Provo readers out there that know what I’m talking about, give the Cubby’s Tri Tip Steak Salad a go and let me know what you think.
