Boston Lettuce with Beef and Eggs

Boston Lettuce with Beef and Eggs

Boston Lettuce with Beef and Eggs

The rain is making my bed so inviting that it took supernatural strength to leave its cozy sheets this morning. As I was driving to work I couldn’t stop yawning and the only way I to tackle this gloomy day was to pretend I was driving through Europe. It’s been almost a year since our European tour and, as often happens in May, it rained a lot. Strangely enough, it only rained during our commute from one city/country to another and as soon as we arrived at our destination little weather angles blocked the cloudburst.

For a little pick-me-up on days like this, I like a hot soup. My homemade beef soup is my go-to soup and then I use the cooked beef to make this delicious Boston lettuce salad. Mom had many cooking tricks up her sleeve and making two dishes out of one piece of meat was one of them. It’s simple and delicious. If making a soup just for this salad seems like drudgery, by all means use leftover roast beef.
It won’t be exact the same salad, but it’s pretty darn close.

 

Ingredients:
Serves 2-4

1 head Boston Lettuce (or 2 Bibb or Butter lettuce)
2 hard boiled Eggs, sliced
½ pound cooked Beef or roast beef, diced or chopped
2 Green Onions, white and green part sliced
1 tablespoon Oil
2 tablespoons Lemon juice (or white vinegar)
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

 

Directions:
Break the lettuce leaves of the heads, rinse and put in a serving bowl or on a platter. Combine oil and lemon juice then season to taste with salt and pepper; drizzle over the lettuce. Top with beef, eggs and onions. Accompany with crusty bread.

    Grenadir - Potato Pasta
    April 4, 2017 at 8:16 pm

    […] You don’t need any culinary skills to make this dish; it is super easy and fast. Grenadir, also called Granadir or Granadir Mars is a very common dish in Central Europe. It is typical military food as it is both cheap and filling, hence the name – Greandier March. I make it whenever I have leftover pasta or potatoes – it’s an excellent way to use them up. This potato pasta dish is a great side dish, but it could also be served as a simple main dish. For non-vegetarian, entrée version, add ham cubes or bacon. Serve alongside salad greens like this Boston lettuce. […]

  2. […] I have a sentimental attachment to this recipe. Mom made Boston Lettuce with Beef and Eggs salad every time she made beef soup. It’s a family […]
