- 1 1/4 Pound sirloin steak
- 4 Tablespoons olive oil
- Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
- 1 1/4 Cup cooked farro
- 6 Cups wild arugula (rocket)
- Juice of 1 Meyer lemon
- 3 Tablespoons grated Grana Padano
Remove the steak from the refrigerator and let rest at room temperature for about 15 minutes. Coat the steak with 1 tablespoon of the olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
Place the steak under the broiler, about 7 minutes for medium rare. Remove from the heat and let rest for about 15 minutes before slicing.
Just before serving, combine the remaining ingredients in a bowl with the remaining olive oil along with any accumulated juices and toss to combine. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
Slice the steak on a bias. Divide the salad onto 2 plates and arrange the steak slices along the sides. Serve immediately.
