Farmhouse Flank Steak Salad 4.00/5 (4 votes)

As the seasons start to change, our recipes tend to lighten up a bit. So, tonight we're serving a wonderful; and filling; and fast (because we're using leftover rice); and DELICIOUS steak salad! If you have super super hearty eaters at your table, add a loaf of sourdough; but the rice and steak should do the trick. Enjoy!

Farmhouse Flank Steak Salad

SERVINGS : 4 PEOPLE PREP TIME : MINUTES

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 pound flank steak
  • kosher salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 cups baby mixed greens
  • 1/2 pound broccoli
  • 1/2 pound asparagus
  • 1 cup cooked wild rice
  • 1/4 cup slivered almonds
  • Vinaigrette
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon anchovy paste
  • 1/8 teaspoon onion powder

DIRECTIONS

  1. Generously season steak with kosher salt and pepper.
  2. Heat olive oil on a grill pan (or you can rub the steak with the olive oil and grill outdoors). When it begins to shimmer, add steak and cook 3-4 minutes per side or until it reaches your desired degree of doneness.
  3. Transfer the steak to a chopping block and let rest for at least 5 minutes and then thinly slice against the grain.
  4. Meanwhile, bring enough water to cover vegetables to a boil. Add broccoli florets and asparagus and cook just a few minutes or until bright green and crisp tender. Drain and run under cold water to stop the cooking process.
  5. Combine vinaigrette ingredients with a whisk or shake in a lidded container.
  6. Toss the mixed baby greens, broccoli, and asparagus with vinaigrette. Top with sliced steak, wild rice, and almonds.
