If you want a gourmet meal that feels fancy without blowing the budget, this sliced steak salad recipe is just for you! This salad at Brio was over $15 a plate, but you can make this salad for the whole family for just under that price. Feed an entire (large) family for the same price as a restaurant dish for one? Yes, please!


If you've ever done any grocery shopping, then you know how pricey steak can be. It's not something that makes it onto our grocery list often, so when we do splurge, we make it stretch. This sliced steak recipe is perfect for just that! Enjoy the delectable taste of steak without the price tag of an all-out family steak night.

This is a great recipe to plan for when steaks are on sale. If you find a great deal, buy some for now, and some for later! They'll stay good, uncooked, in the freezer for four months. Get even more tips on how to save on your groceries in this post!

One of the best things about a salad is how versatile they are. If you are craving this yummy steak salad, but don't quite have all the ingredients it calls for… shelf cook away! Swap out your greens and your veggies with whatever you have on hand. It may not quite be a Brio copycat anymore… but we bet it's still delicious.


It's no secret salads don't hold up well as leftovers. If you're not planning to finish your entire steak salad in one meal, don't mix it all together. Instead, only mix what you will eat and leave the rest in separate storage containers. This way, all the ingredients will stay fresh and crisp and be ready for round two whenever you are!

This steak is really good leftover! If you expect to have leftovers, assemble your salads individually (versus mixing all the ingredients together) so any leftovers can be stored in the fridge. This will allow maximum crispness for your salad! Just heat up the steak and make your salad the same way you did the first go around.

    What is “raw” horseradish? Can’t I use what comes in a jar?
