Ingredients

  • 2 beef Ranch Steaks, cut 1 inch thick (about 8 ounces each)

  • 1 pound green beans, trimmed

  • 2 teaspoons crushed mixed peppercorns (black, white, pink and green)

  • 2 medium red and/or yellow bell peppers, cut into quarters

  • 1 package (5 ounces) mixed salad greens

  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion

  • 1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese

Vinaigrette:

  • 1/4 cup champagne or white wine vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground mixed peppercorns

Preparation

  1. Bring 1-inch water to a boil in medium saucepan. Add green beans, cover and cook 4 to 5 minutes or until crisp-tender. Drain; set aside.

  2. Meanwhile, combine vinaigrette ingredients in small bowl; set aside.

  3. Press 2 teaspoons peppercorns evenly onto beef steaks. Place steaks in center of grid over medium, ash-covered coals; arrange peppers around steak. Grill steaks, covered, 11 to 14 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, 12 to 16 minutes) for medium rare (145°F) to medium (160°F) doneness. Grill peppers 7 to 11 minutes (gas grill times remain the same) or until crisp-tender, turning steaks and vegetables occasionally.

  4. Carve steaks into thin slices. Cut peppers into 1-1/2-inch pieces. Season beef and vegetables with salt, as desired. Divide salad greens among four serving bowls; top evenly with vegetables. Arrange beef on salad. Sprinkle with blue cheese. Drizzle with vinaigrette.
