Ranch Steak Bruschetta Salad Author Devon Delaney

My menu plan this week kind of hinges on the weather.  We are expecting lots and lots of rain.  

I think I am prepared.  Fridge, freezer and pantry are stocked.  

Our biggest concern is loosing power! 

The Menu 


Pork Chops, Rice w/Cream Gravy and Black Eye Peas


Ranch Steak Bruschetta Salad


Mexican Chicken, Spanish Rice and Guacamole


Oven Baked Mac and Cheese


Fresh Catch and Veggies 


Bar B Que Chicken, Ranch Style Beans, Cole Slaw


Date night (it's payday week) 

And here's Devon's 


6 tablespoons ranch dressing

1½ tablespoons prepared horseradish

1 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper

2 teaspoons ground coffee

1½ teaspoons ground cumin

1½ teaspoons ancho chile powder

4 (4-ounce) beef tenderloin steaks, trimmed (1 inch thick)

Cooking spray

¼ cup chopped shallots

¼ cup chopped fresh basil

¼ cup chopped bottled roasted red bell peppers

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

12 cherry tomatoes, halved

6 cups loosely packed arugula

12 (1-ounce) slices French bread, toasted


Combine dressing and horseradish in a small bowl; cover and chill.

Combine black pepper, coffee, cumin, and chile powder. Rub both sides of steaks with pepper mixture; let stand 10 minutes. Heat a nonstick grill pan over medium heat. Coat steaks with cooking spray. Add steaks to pan; cook 3 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Remove steaks from pan; let stand 7 minutes.

Combine shallots, basil, bell peppers, juice, and tomatoes in a small bowl; toss well.

Arrange 1 cup arugula on each of 6 plates; top each serving with 2 toast slices. Cut steaks diagonally across grain into thin slices. Divide steak evenly among toast slices; top each serving with about 2 tablespoons tomato mixture. Drizzle each serving with about 1 tablespoon dressing mixture. Serve immediately. Yield: 6 servings.
