Ingredients

Vinaigrette:

  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon Diamond Crystal kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

Salad:

  • 4 cups mixed salad greens
  • ½ cup cherry tomatoes, halved

Steak:

  • 1 teaspoon Diamond Crystal kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon dried thyme
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 lb. sirloin, cubed into 2-inch cubes*

Instructions

Prepare the vinaigrette:

  • In a small bowl, whisk together the vinegar, garlic, Dijon mustard, salt, and pepper. Add the olive oil in a slow, steady stream, whisking constantly until the dressing is emulsified. Set aside.

Prepare the salad:

  • Arrange the mixed greens and the tomatoes on a large serving platter. Set aside.

Cook the steak:

  • In a large bowl, mix together the kosher salt, black pepper, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, and dried thyme. Add the steak cubes and toss to coat.
  • In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the seasoned steak cubes. Cook until done to your liking. I suggest cooking 2 minutes per side for medium. Don’t overcook, or the steak will be dry and chewy.
  • Remove the cooked steak cubes from the skillet and arrange them on top of the salad. Whisk the vinaigrette one more time and drizzle it on top. Serve immediately.

Notes

*Sirloin is very flavorful, but it can be a bit tough. You can tenderize it overnight in a vinegar-based marinade prior to sauteing. Or choose a more tender cut such as tenderloin.
