Iron-Rich Salad

This salad is my go-to lunch for days when I'm feeling a little anemic. Featuring spinach, organic steak, molasses and pumpkin seeds it has everything you need to raise iron levels in 1 delicious and satisfying serving. 


For The Salad:

For The Dressing / Steak Marinade:


Cook Your Flank Steak:

Create the dressing / marinade by combining all of the listed ingredients and mixing well. Lightly salt and pepper your flank steak then cover with most of the marinade (reserving 2 tbs for salad dressing) and let sit for a minimum of 4 hours. Prepare BBQ to medium-high heat. Remove meat from marinade and discard marinade. Grill steak your flank steak to desired doneness (about 4 minutes per side for medium-rare). Remove from heat, let cool, then slice thinly. This amount of steak can serve as your meal prep for an entire week of lunches.

Assemble The Salad:

Lay your washed spinach into a large bowl and top with chopped tomatoes and pumpkin seeds. Toss with the remaining dressing / marinade and top with thinly sliced flank steak.
