Great Steak & Potato Company
Great Steak Salad
John: So you are on a reality show. Lets say Fear Factor. And lets say that you need to eat a pig brain, a pig heart and a pig's wanker. Smart money says eat the penis first to get it out of the way while you still have the stomach to do it. Todays salad follows the same line of thinking. Lets get the grossest salad out of the way while we can still stand eating salads. The Great Steak Salad! For $4.99 you get the contents of a Philly Steak dumped on lettuce - steaming hot. I'm not a big fan of hot toppings on a cold salad but off we go. And you know what - it wasn't half bad. Somehow the lettuce didn't wilt and the flavor of low-cal Italian went with grilled onions. I would never get this again BUT if you are on the Atkins this is right in your target zone. As a salad its a failure. As a sandwich without a bun served on lettuce - its great alternative to eating 6 hard-boiled eggs for lunch. C--.
Margaret: Ew, I thought this one was disgusting. It was like a gross sandwich threw up on a mediocre salad. I successfully pushed away the steak and ate that, and then tried to eat the salad portion, which consisted of a lot A LOT of lettuce, two cuke slices, two tomato halfs and after I dug around a little, a very small carrot. The steak doesn't taste that bad but when you're eating mouthful after mouthful it starts tasting too much like animal. And then when I started to just try and eat the "salad" part, there was still hot meat and hot onions floating around. I had the ranch dressing (of course) and maybe that didn't help, but I'm not sure a dressing of pure gold would have tasted any better. The plus point about this salad is, there was no way I was eating the whole thing, so I agree with John in that it's good for weight-loss, cause its gross, and you won't want to eat it anyway. For me, it gets a D. Minus. A D-.
