Steak Salad with Arugula, Parmesan and Balsamic Shallot Glaze

Ingredients:

Parmesan Butter:

  • 2 Tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. butter, at room temperature
  • 1 large or two small rib-eye, strip loin or other grilling steaks
  • 4 cups arugula

Balsamic Shallot Glaze: (this sauce is delicious … you may want to double)

  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped shallots (can substitute red onion, in a pinch)
  • 1/2 tsp. dark brown sugar

Garnish:

  • 2 lemon wedges
  • Parmesan cheese shavings

Instructions:

  1. Heat your BBQ grill (or grill pan). While you heat your grill, prepare the Parmesan butter and set aside. Chop your shallots and place in a small saucepan with the balsamic and brown sugar. Set aside for now.
  2. Grill your steak, to taste. Place on a cutting board to rest and immediately spoon the Parmesan butter over your steak to melt while the steak rests.
  3. Meanwhile, place the saucepan with the sauce on the stove over high heat. Bring quickly to a boil and let boil for one minute, then remove from heat and set aside.
  4. Place a bed of arugula over a large plate. Cut your steak on the diagonal and place on top of the arugula. Spoon the balsamic/shallot glaze over the steak and sprinkle the salad with shaved Parmesan. Serve with a lemon slice to squeeze over the salad.
