Paleo Balsamic Ginger Steak Salad
Health Highlights
A delicious steak marinated in the perfect dressing and topped on fresh salad greens.


1/4 cup Balsamic vinegar (Marinade)
1/4 cup Coconut aminos, Coconut Secret (Marinade)
2 tbsp Apple cider vinegar (Marinade)
1 medium shallot(s) Shallots (minced; Marinade)
3 clove(s) Garlic (minced; Marinade)
1 tsp minced Ginger root (Marinade)
1/4 tsp Black pepper (Marinade)
1/4 tsp Sea salt, fine (Marinade)
681 gm Beef, rib eye (grass fed)
1 tbsp Butter, unsalted
1/3 cup Balsamic vinegar (Vinaigrette)
1 medium shallot(s) Shallots (chopped; Vinaigrette)
2 clove(s) Garlic (Vinaigrette)
1 tbsp Coconut aminos, Coconut Secret (Vinaigrette)
1/2 tsp minced Ginger root (Vinaigrette)
1/3 cup Extra virgin olive oil (Vinaigrette)
1 head Lettuce, romaine (chopped)
1 large Carrots (shredded)
1 cup Grape tomatoes (cut in half)
1 cucumber(s) Cucumber (diced)


  1. Place the balsamic vinegar, coconut aminos, apple cider vinegar, minced shallots, minced garlic, ginger, black pepper, and sea salt in a large bag, and then add in the steak. 
  2.  Massage the marinade into the steak and then let it sit for 30 minutes to 1 hour at room temperature. This will also allow the meat to come to room temperature, which is important when cooking with grass-fed steaks.
  3.  After the meat is done marinating, heat a large skillet over high heat.
  4.  Add in the butter then quickly sear each side of the steaks (about 5 minutes per side). Grass-fed steaks are best-served rare-medium rare and do not require long cooking times about 3-4 minutes on each side.
  5.  Let meat rest for 8-10 minutes.
  6.  While the meat is resting, combine the vinaigrette ingredients into a blender: balsamic vinegar, shallots, garlic, coconut aminos, ginger root, and olive oil, and blend until creamy. 
  7.  When meat is ready, cut into thin slices against the grain, serve over chopped romaine with shredded carrots, tomatoes, and cucumber, and a drizzle of the vinaigrette dressing.
