Instructions

Prep:

  1. Optional but recommended: Remove steaks from the refrigerator 30-60 minutes before cooking. Pat steaks dry with a paper towel and season both sides with a small amount of salt.
  2. This recipe is perfect to grill or cook your steak. (If cooking your steak, preheat oven to 350 degrees and heat a heavy oven-safe pan, preferably a cast iron skillet, over high heat).
  3. Place a large handful of greens on each plate. Top greens with sliced strawberries, onion slices and crumbled blue cheese.

Grill or Cook Steak:

  1. If grilling: Grill to desired preference. Transfer steaks to a cutting board and thinly slice across the grain. Serve steak on top of salad immediately. Drizzle with Balsamic Vinegar (or try one of our vinaigrette recipes) and enjoy!
  2. If cooking: Once the cast iron pan is hot, pan sear EACH side of the steaks for exactly 2 minutes (set a timer so you don’t overcook). Remove the cast iron pan from the heat and immediately season steaks with a small amount of salt and pepper.
  3. Place the cast iron pan with steaks in the oven. (If your pan has a plastic handle, you’ll need to transfer your steaks to a baking pan). Depending on the thickness of the steaks and your preferred doneness, bake steaks in the oven for 10-15 minutes. (You can use a meat thermometer to check internal temperature. For a medium steak, 140 degrees is the sweet spot).
  4. Once cooked to your liking, remove steaks from oven. Transfer steaks to a cutting board and thinly slice across the grain. Serve steak on top of salad immediately. Drizzle with Balsamic Vinegar (or try one of our vinaigrette recipes), top with nuts and enjoy!

Notes

Why a hot pan is important: The hot heat is essential to create a crisp, pan-seared steak. The easiest way to know if the pan is hot enough is to wet your fingers and flick water on the pan. When it’s hot enough, it will sizzle and smoke slightly.

Always check for FfL-friendly ingredients.

We recommend organic ingredients when feasible.
