  • 1-1.5 lbs True Aussie Tenderloin can sub another cut of Aussie beef if desired
  • 16 oz Spring Mix or Mixed Greens
  • 1.5 cups blackberries, raspberries, or blueberries I used a combination of all 3!
  • ½ cucumber cut into rounds
  • ¼ red onion sliced thin
  • Feta cheese for topping- optional

Strawberry Balsamic Vinaigrette

  • ½ cup olive or avocado oil
  • cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 2 tbsp dijon mustard
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • 1 cup strawberries
  • 1-2 pitted dates use 2 if your strawberries aren't very sweet!


  • Combine all vinaigrette ingredients EXCEPT for the strawberries and date(s) in a blender. Blend on high for 30 seconds. Place steaks into a shallow bowl and pour only HALF of the vinaigrette over top. Let them marinate in the fridge for a minimum of 30 minutes.
  • Add the strawberries and date(s) to the blender with the remaining vinaigrette. Blend on high for 30 seconds until combined and creamy. Pour into a storage jar and place in the fridge until ready to use. This can also be made the night before!
  • Once the steak has been marinating long enough, heat up your grill over medium high heat. Cook the steaks for 3 to 5 minutes each side for medium-rare (an internal temperature of 135 degrees F), 5 to 7 minutes for medium (140 degrees F) or 8 to 10 minutes for medium-well (150 degrees F).
  • Slice the steak and serve over top the greens with the berries, cucumbers, onions, feta, and vinaigrette. Enjoy!


*You can also cook the steaks using a cast iron skillet. Simply add 1 tbsp of olive or avocado oil to a cast iron pan and let it heat up over medium high heat. Once hot, add the steaks. Sear for 2 minutes each side, then finish in a 450 degree oven for approximately 5 minutes for medium rare. Enjoy!
