Ingredients

  • 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

Directions

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.
