Super Simple Steak & Salad

Well, I finally made it back to the box tonight...I mean the gym. For all you non Crossfitters, that's what we call the gym. My legs are going to feel this one! 150 squats, lots of running, amongst other fun things! Anyway, coming home to make this simple dinner was just what I needed.


  • 4 sirloin steaks, 1-inch thick, about 10 to 12-ounces each
  • 2 cloves garlic, cracked from skin and halved
  • Extra-virgin olive oil, for drizzling, plus 2 tablespoons
  • 4 sprigs rosemary very finely chopped
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper or grill seasoning, if desired
  • 4 cups arugula leaves
  • 2 heirloom tomato or 2 medium vine-ripe tomatoes, cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1 lemon


Heat grill or grill pan to medium-high to high.
Rub room temperature meat with cut garlic. Drizzle the meat with olive oil, rub with rosemary and season liberally with salt and pepper or grill seasoning. Cook steaks 4 minutes on each side for medium, let rest 5 minutes then slice.
Dress greens and halved or chopped tomatoes with the juice of 1 lemon, 2 tablespoons olive oil and salt and pepper. Pile salad on top of sliced steak
