Bacon Wrapped Sirloin Served with Grilled Romaine and Grilled Sweet Onions

We bought a six pack of those Quantum Steakhouse bacon wrapped sirloin steaks. They are were less than $13 for six of them, so they were a bit over $2/each.

My wonderful wife Marcelle started the grill while I sliced up the vegetables and seasoned them with salt and pepper. The romaine came from Costco and the sweet onions from the farmers market.  For the romaine I made a dressing of capers, apple cider vinegar and dijon mustard.

We got the idea for this dinner from watching "Secrets of a Restaurant Chef" on the Food Network.  We saw Anne Burrell make some steaks with some grilled sweet onions on the side and we thought that sounded good. Then to complete the meal we made Alton's grilled romaine from "I'm Just Here For The Food" cookbook. This is a simpler recipe than his one on the Food Network site.

We loved the dinner and we will certainly do something similar to this again, but we will probably vary the vegetables to give it some variety. The total cost for both of us was about $6.  Compare that to the price of a similar meal in a steakhouse and you can certainly see the value.

Below is a picture of the meal. I do apologize for the fact we started eating before we photographed it.

Then we had some Edy's fruit bars for desert. They had a coupon at Costco for them a while ago and we have been going through them.  They have an honest and fresh fruit flavor and are satisfying without any fat and very few calories.
