Sliced Steak with Arugula

Serves 4

Ingredients

  • 5 oz baby arugula
  • 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 large garlic cloves, smashed
  • 1 large spring of rosemary
  • 1 lb boneless top loin steak or sirloin (1 inch thick)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 large shallot, thinly sliced crosswise
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons red-wine vinegar
  • black pepper to taste

 Method

Heat oil with garlic and rosemary in a 12-inch heavy skillet over high heat, turning garlic once or twice, until garlic is golden, about 4 minutes. Discard garlic and rosemary.
Cut steak crosswise into 1/8-inch-thick slices and toss with 3/4 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Add meat to skillet all at once and sauté over high heat, tossing with tongs to color evenly, about 1 minute for medium-rare. Arrange steak over arugula using tongs, then add shallot to oil in skillet along with vinegars and remaining 1/4 teaspoon each of salt and pepper and boil 2 minutes. Pour dressing over steak and serve immediately.
