Of the meats that make their way onto our plate, steak is the best in protein. But, since it’s harder for the body to break down, it’s not often a staple, like chicken or turkey. Make the most of your biweekly steak nights by trading in boring and plain for one of these Irvine-approved recipes.

| Creamy Beet Salad |

The earthiness of oven-roasted beets makes them a great base for this salad. In addition to being a stellar source of potassium, they’re hearty and take on a beautiful purple hue when plated. Combined with the essential oils of the orange and tangy taste from the sour cream, it’s a dish you’re sure to enjoy.

Ingredients

Marinade:
Beet, 1
Sour cream, 1/4 cup
Orange juice (and zest), 1 orange
Poppy seeds, 1 tsp
Black pepper to taste

Directions
