Olive oil

1 lb skirt grass fed steak or flank steak

Salt and freshly ground pepper

1/2 head lettuce greens

1 bunch of arugula, young leaves, tough stems removed

1/2 of one red bell pepper, thinly sliced lengthwise and cut into 1-inch long pieces

4 scallions, thinly sliced

Several toasted walnuts, chopped

4 oz goat cheese, crumbled

Pomegranate seeds or thinly sliced kumquats (optional)

2 teaspoon fresh  lemon juice

2 Tbsp olive oil

Salt and Pepper



Heat a couple teaspoons of cooking oil in a cast iron pan on high heat.

Pat the steaks dry. Sprinkle with a little salt. Sear the steaks in the pan on both sides, just until nicely browned.

Remove from pan to a cutting board. Let rest for a few minutes before cutting. Slice thin slices, against the grain of the meat.

Toss together the lettuce greens, arugula, bell pepper, and scallions. Arrange on individual plates.

Sprinkle on chopped walnuts. Sprinkle with goat cheese.

Lay on top several slices of chilled sliced steak. Sprinkle with pomegranate seeds or sliced kumquats if using.

Mix together the lemon juice, olive oil, and a dash of salt and pepper. Drizzle on salad.
