Prep: 4 Minutes
Chill: 6 Hours
Cook: 12 Minutes
Stand: 5 Minutes

Ingredients

1/2 cup dry red wine
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 1/2 pounds flank steak
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
6 cups baby spinach leaves
Crumbled blue cheese, grilled baguette slices

Preparation

1. Combine first 5 ingredients in a large, heavy-duty zip-top plastic bag. Add steak and seal bag, turning to coat. Refrigerate 6 hours or overnight.

2. Preheat grill to high (450° to 600°). Remove steak from marinade, discarding marinade. Pat steak dry with paper towels, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Grill, on greased grill rack, 6 minutes on each side (for medium-rare) or to desired degree of doneness. Let stand 5 minutes before cutting into thin slices.

3. Toss spinach with 1/4 cup Dijon-Rosemary Dressing, and divide among 4 salad plates. Place steak slices on plates, and top with crumbled blue cheese. Serve with grilled baguette slices and remaining dressing.
