Beef Strips Salad with Plums and Feta

This was an interesting recipe. Unfortunately, I was in a hurry so didn’t have time to take photos of the different steps. Mea culpa. Next time I make it, I’ll have to come back and post more pictures.

I adapted the original recipe. I’m starting to get a lot more comfortable in doing that — just replacing ingredients with ones that I like more or that are cheaper. For this particular recipe, I had bought a large batch of beef strips from Costco and had feta in the fridge already so that’s what I substituted. Skip the feta if you’re following a really strict paleo diet.

Here’s the recipe …


  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 4 teaspoons fresh lemon juice, divided
  • 1 pound or 3 large beef strips
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 8 cups loosely packed baby arugula
  • 3 plums, thinly sliced
  • 1 avocado
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese


  1. Combine the pepper, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil, and 1 teaspoon lemon juice in a small bowl then rub this over both sides of the meat.
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  3. Coat the skillet with cooking spray.
  4. Add the meat to the pan and cook 5 minutes on each side or until it reaches your desired degree of doneness.
  5. Remove the steak from the skillet then let it rest for 5 -10 minutes.
  6. Cut the meat diagonally across the grain into thin slices and set this aside
  7. Combine remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, honey, and 1/8 teaspoon salt in a large bowl and stir it well with a whisk.
  8. Add the arugula to a bowl and toss gently with the dressing to coat it.
  9. Arrange about 1 1/2 cups arugula mixture onto each of 4 plates and top each serving with 3 ounces steak, about 1/2 cup plums, sliced 1/4 avocado and 1 tablespoon of the cheese.

Pretty simple, no? Here’s the final product.
