  • 1 pound beef Round Tip Steaks, cut 1/4-inch thick

  • 1 large egg

  • 2 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, minced

  • 1 tablespoon water

  • 1 cup saltine cracker crumbs

  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro leaves

  • 4 to 6 tablespoons vegetable oil

  • 6 cups mixed salad greens

  • 1 cucumber, seeded, sliced

  • 1-1/2 cups diced tomatoes

  • Chopped fresh cilantro leaves

  • 1/2 cup prepared Italian dressing

  • 1 chipotle pepper in adobo sauce, minced

  • 1 teaspoon adobo sauce


  1. Whisk dressing ingredients in small bowl until blended. Set aside.

  2. Beat egg, chipotle peppers and water in shallow dish until blended. Combine cracker crumbs and 3 tablespoons cilantro in second shallow dish. Dip each beef steak into egg mixture, then into crumb mixture to coat both sides.

  3. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium to medium-high heat until hot. Place 1 to 2 steaks in skillet. (Do not overcrowd.) Cook 3 to 4 minutes or until coating is golden brown and beef is medium rare (145°F) to medium (160°F) doneness, turning once. (Do not overcook.) Remove; keep warm. Repeat with remaining steaks, adding additional oil as needed and adjusting heat as necessary to prevent over browning.

  4. Divide salad greens evenly among 4 plates. Top evenly with cucumber and tomatoes. Top each with steaks. Drizzle with dressing and sprinkle with cilantro, as desired.
