Steak Cobb Salad with Truffle Dressing

Craving a hearty salad? Our Hanger Steak Cobb Salad with Truffle Dressing is the perfect choice! With juicy steak, fresh greens, and flavorful toppings, it’s a meal you won’t forget.

Why I Love It

This Steak Cobb Salad with Truffle Dressing is an adapted recipe from a restaurant in Santo Domingo (DR) called “Mix”. This is my attempt to re-create the recipe because I have found myself missing this one on a regular basis. 

 

If you ever visit Santo Domingo, I encourage you to go to Mix and try their food; it is deliciously creative.

What Are The Ingredients?

For the Dressing

  • Tamarind Fruit Pulp: You can find Tamarind Fruit Pulp in the freezer at supermarkets
  • Honey: Honey is my preferred sweetener, but you can substitute with Maple Syrup.  
  • Mayonnaise: If you like to make a healthier version, you can substitute the Mayo for Plain Greek Yogurt and add a bit of water until you get the smooth consistency of a dressing.
  • Truffle Oil: This is essential!
  • Salt/Pepper: Obviously

For the Salad

  • Hanger Steak: I used Hanger Steak for this recipe, but you could substitute it with Skirt Steak as well. 
  • Spring Mix: I recommend using Spring Mix, but you could also substitute with Romaine or Arugula. 
  • Tomatoes. I used globe tomatoes for this recipe, but any tomato should work.
  • White Mushroom: I love mushrooms, and they go super with this recipe.
  • Bacon: You can crisp up some bacon or use store-bought bacon bits. 
  • Gorgonzola: You can substitute it with Blue Cheese as well.

How to Make Steak Cobb Salad with Truffle Dressing

  1. Cook the Meat: Pre-heat Cast Iron skillet to medium-high heat. Place the steak on the cast iron. Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side (or to your desired doneness), adding salt when the meat starts to sweat. Turn off the heat, and cover for 5 more minutes. Once cooked, remove the steak from the heat and place it onto the cutting board. Let steak rest for 5 minutes before slicing.

     

  2. Make the Dressing: In a small bowl, mix the tamarind pulp, honey, mayonnaise, truffle oil, salt, and pepper. Mix well until blended. You will have 4-6 servings.

     

  3. Build the Salad: In a large bowl, add the romaine, chopped tomatoes, portobello slices, crispy bacon, gorgonzola cheese crumble, and avocado. Add 2-3 tablespoons of dressing and toss to combine.

     

  4. Serve & Enjoy!
