Instructions
Grilled Steak
  1. Remove the steak from the fridge 30 minutes before cooking.

  2.  Use the rub of your choice and season the steaks on all sides. I use Montreal Steak seasoning as it doesn't interfere with the flavors of the salad, it matches nicely.

  3. Set your grill to medium-high

  4. Place the steaks on the grill and cook over direct heat for 4-5 minutes on each side for medium rare. Use a meat thermometer to check and cook to your preferred done-ness.

  5. Remove the steaks from the grill and then let the steaks rest for 10-15 minutes while your prepare the salad. The juices will settle and redistribute throughout the meat.

Preparing the Salad
  1. You can divide this recipe and plate on separate plates if desired or plate on a large platter as shown.

  2. I prefer to lay out the salad as shown on a large platter , arugula on the bottom, then topped with the grated carrots.

  3. Place the carrots and the cumber around the sides of the salad,

  4. Slice the steak once it has sat for a while and place on top of the salad.

  5. Drizzle the salad dressing on top, generously, then sprinkle the sesame seeds on top.

  6. Split up and serve!
