I lived in Pittsburgh for 5 years and never would have thought I'd ever see French fries in a salad. You will probably only see this recipe in Pittsburgh restaurants which makes it special and unique! It's very delicious. Add your favorite dressing.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Rub sirloin steaks with vegetable oil and season with salt and pepper. Let the steaks warm at room temperature for 30 minutes.

  • Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Prepare a baking sheet with cooking spray.

  • Spread French fries onto the prepared baking sheet.

  • Bake French fries in the preheated oven until slightly browned, about 15 minutes.

  • While the fries bake, cook steaks on preheated grill until beginning to firm and are hot and slightly pink in the center, 6 to 8 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 140 degrees F (60 degrees C). Remove steaks to a cutting board.

  • Mix romaine lettuce, cucumber, and egg together in a salad bowl. Pile French fries atop the salad mixture.

  • Cut steaks into bite-size pieces and arrange atop the French fries. Sprinkle croutons and mozzarella cheese over the entire salad.


Cook's Notes:

Tuna steaks or chicken can be used in lieu of steak.
