Yield: 2
Prep Time: 15 Minutes
Cook Time: 20 Minutes

Ingredients


• 12-16 oz. arugula
• 1 1/4 in. thick top sirloin steak
• 3/4 cup olive oil
• 6 sage leaves
• 6 cloves garlic
• 3 stems rosemary
• 2 lemons
• 4 oz. Parmigiano-Reggiano

Instructions


Rinse and dry arugula, then season with salt and place on platter. Chop fresh garlic, sage and rosemary. Place in a bowl and add the zest of both lemons and a pinch of salt. Set aside.

In a skillet, pan sear heavily seasoned (salted and peppered) steak on high heat until nicely caramelized on all sides, yet still very rare. Thinly slice and lay on top of arugula. Grate cheese over the steak until covered.

In a small sauté pan, heat oil on stove top until it begins to smoke. When smoking, add the garlic, sage, rosemary and lemon zest. Leave on the burner to cook for ten seconds. Remove and pour over steak to finish cooking the beef. Squeeze the juice of half a lemon over the top and serve and enjoy with Darms Lane Pinot Noir!
