Ingredients

For the steak

  • 1/2 Pound top round or flank steak
  • Salt and pepper
  • 4 Tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2-3 Tablespoons olive oil

For the strawberry-balsamic salsa

  • 8-10 strawberries, tops removed and roughly diced
  • 3 Tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 10 large basil leaves, chiffonade
  • Pinch of salt and pepper

Directions

For the steak

Season the steak generously on both sides with salt and pepper. Add the balsamic vinegar to coat, and let the steak marinate for about 15 minutes on each side. 

When ready, cook on an oiled grill or grill pan over medium-high heat for about 3 minutes on each side, or until desired doneness.

For the strawberry-balsamic salsa

In a small mixing bowl, combine the diced strawberries, balsamic vinegar, basil chiffonade, and salt and pepper. Mix well to integrate. 

 

To serve, cut the steak into inch-thick strips and top with salsa. 

Steak Shopping Tip

Most cattle are fed a diet of grass until they are sent to a feedlot – where they are finished on corn. When possible, choose beef from cattle that are “100% grass fed” - it will be more expensive, but better for your health.

Steak Cooking Tip

The method used to cook beef is dependent on the cut. Cuts that are more tender, like filet mignon, should be cooked for a relatively short amount of time over high heat by grilling or sautéing. While less tender cuts, like brisket and short ribs, should be cooked for a longer time with lower heat by braising or stewing.
