Prep time 5 minutes | Ready in 15 minutes | Serves 2 to 3


1 strip loin steak, 1 ½ to 2 inches thick (about 400 to 500 g)
Extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon pesto
1/2 teaspoon Dijon
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 cups baby arugula
1 small chunk of Parmesan (about 2 square inches)


  1. Pat the steak dry with paper towels. Brush both sides lightly with olive oil, then sprinkle evenly with salt.

  2. Heat a heavy frying pan over high. Place the steak in the dry pan and cook 2 minutes. Flip the steak and cook another 2 minutes, then reduce the heat to medium and cook another 5 to 8 minutes, or until the steak is medium rare to medium. Transfer to a cutting board and let rest at least 5 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, combine the oil, lemon juice, pesto, Dijon and salt in a small jar and shake well, until combined. Divide the arugula between 2 or 3 plates. Use a vegetable peeler to shave thin slices of cheese over the arugula.

  4. Slice the steak thinly and divide over the salads. Drizzle with the vinaigrette.
