Steak Salad with Crispy Potatoes, Bacon, and Blue Cheese Dressing

Yield 4 servings



  1. Cook the bacon in a large skillet over medium heat, until it's crisp, about 5 to 7 minutes.  When it's cooked, transfer the bacon to a paper towel-lined plate.
  2. Season the potatoes with 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper.  Cook them in the bacon drippings on medium-high, tossing occasionally, until browned and tender for 12 to 15 minutes.  Transfer to the plate with the bacon.
  3. Heat the oil in the skillet over medium-high heat.  Season the steak with 1/4 teaspoon each of salt and pepper and cook it for 5 to 7 minutes per side (for medium-rare). Let it rest for at least 5 minutes before slicing.
  4. Mix the blue cheese, sour cream, buttermilk, vinegar, scallion, and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper in a small bowl.  Divide the salad among plates, top it with the steak, bacon, and potatoes, and drizzle each one with the dressing.
