Ingredients
  • 2 oz. – boneless eye round steak
  • 2.5 oz. / 70 g - arugula
  • 7 to 10 – organic cherry tomatoes
  • 10 slices – organic English cucumber
  • 1 shallot
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil extra light
  • 1/2 tsp. - sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp. - Mrs. Dash Seasoning
  • 1/8 tsp. - black pepper
Instructions
  1. Steak Seasoning Instructions
  2. Measure out dry ingredients: sea salt, Mrs. Dash seasoning black ground pepper, and mix well to combine. Set aside until ready for use.

  3. Instructions on How to Sear Steak
  4. First of all, I prefer to soak and rinse the meat before use. That way any topical bacteria or red dye gets rinsed off (this is totally optional, and you may skip this step). Pep dry the steak with a paper towel and dip each side into the prepared seasoning.
  5. Next, add a couple tablespoons of olive oil into a skillet and heat on high heat for a few minutes (heat about 5 to 7 minutes if using a cast iron skillet) or as soon as you see the first sight of smoke.
  6. Finally, place seasoned steak and sear for about 3 to 5 minutes one side, then flip the steak over and sear the other side for 2 to 3 minutes for a medium rear. You may adjust the searing time to less if you prefer rear stake or a bit more for a well-done steak. Remove from a skillet and let the steak rest and cool for 10 minutes before slicing and placing on salad.
  7. Assembling the Salad
  8. In the mean, while rinse and slice vegetables cucumber, shallot, and cherry tomatoes. Place arugula (about 2.5 oz/70g) onto a serving plate. Then beautifully lay out sliced vegetables. Slice cooled steak and place on salad.
  9. Drizzle about 1/4 cup of the salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing over the salad.
  10. Enjoy!
