Hard to go wrong with steak, mushrooms & onions. We grilled a sirloin (on sale), then sliced thin to top the warm salad. Served with the recommended asiago-garlic toast. Nice change to the basics.
Filet Mignon with Arugula Salad
Arugula, a peppery salad green, makes a tasty bed for pan-seared steak. Asiago garlic bread is a fitting accompaniment. Combine 1 tablespoon olive oil and 1 minced garlic clove; brush evenly over 4 (1-inch-thick) French bread slices. Top each bread slice with 1 tablespoon grated Asiago cheese. Broil 2 minutes or until cheese melts and bread is toasted.
