4 steaks of your choice I used beef sirloin tip, 1 inch thick
steak seasoning I used Montreal Steak Spice, but simple salt and pepper will also do
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
6 cups arugula
6 oz 1 cup raspberries
6 oz 1 cup blueberries
1 cup strawberries sliced
1/2 cup feta cheese crumbled
1/4 cup slivered almonds
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup olive oil
3 teaspoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
salt and pepper
Season steak and allow to sit at room temperature for 5-10 minutes.
Heat oil in a cast-iron skillet over medium high heat. Wait until the oil is very hot, it will be shimmering.
Add the steak to the pan, do not touch it. Cook for 5 minutes, flip, and cook for another 3 minutes.
Transfer the steak to a plate and allow to rest for 5 minutes before cutting into strips.
While the steak rests, combine all salad ingredients in a large bowl.
Shake together all vinaigrette ingredients in a small shaker, then pour over the salad and toss to coat evenly.
Divide the salad into 4 bowls, and top with steak.
