Recipe by Irmgard
A lighter version of a steak dinner. I made this with sirloin marinated in the Barefoot Contessa's barbeque sauce but salt and pepper is fine if you like your flavours simple. Please note the standing time is included in the cooking time.
- 1 lb grilling strips beef loin steak, 1-inch thick
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 2 cups mushrooms, halved
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1 (6 ounce) bag Baby Spinach
- 1⁄2 cup red onion, thinly sliced
- 1⁄4 cup light mayonnaise
- 2 tablespoons milk
- 2 tablespoons prepared horseradish
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon ground black pepper
