Try e-mailing Mousepad Member Kevin (Yee), he's a restaurant columnist here at Mouseplanet. After that, I'm no help.

First, salt and pepper the steak and grill rare. Spray the asparagus and the squash with the oil, and season with salt and pepper. Grill the vegetables until tender and then grill the fruit. Arrange the vegetables and fruit on a plate. Slice the steak thinly on the diagonal and place on top of the grilled fruit and vegetables. Garnish with thinly sliced onions and fresh cilantro. Drizzle vinaigrette dressing on top and serve.

I think Cafe Orleans uses shredded beef for everything.

I CAN HARDLY WAIT TO HEAR BACK FROM HIM! Maybe Beef salad will be on our menu here at home this weekend!! I hope so!

I have never been so smitten with a salad...think it was the Disney magic? Or was it really good? :p

Yes, he used to do the food-related column on this site, but I'm not sure he necessarily has access to all the recipes of everything at Disneyland. Also, with his regular work, his work on MiceAge and his family, I figure he's pretty busy right now.

You might try sending your request to Disneyland via their website or better yet, if you can, make the request at Cafe Orleans directly. After all, they should definitely have the recipe, though whether or not they are allowed to distribute it is another issue.

I'd go to Disneyland.com and click on "Contact Us" and send them an email. They usually respond pretty quickly.

I am wondering if maybe you are thinking of steak salad?

I have this recipe:

1 1/2 pounds beef sirloin steak
8 cups romaine lettuce, torn into bite-size pieces
6 roma (plum) tomatoes, sliced
1/2 cup fresh mushrooms, sliced
3/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
1/4 cup walnuts

1/3 cup vegetable oil
3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
3 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1/8 teaspoon liquid smoke flavoring

1 Preheat oven on broiler setting. Broil steaks for 3 to 5 minutes per side, or to desired doneness. Allow to cool, then slice into bite-size pieces.
2 On chilled plates, arrange lettuce, tomatoes, and mushrooms. Sprinkle with blue cheese and walnuts. Top with steak slices.
3 In a small bowl, whisk together oil, vinegar, lemon juice, salt, pepper, Worcestershire sauce, and smoke flavoring. Drizzle over salad.
