Total Time
20 Mins
4 servings (serving size: about 3 ounces steak, about 2 cups salad, and 1 tablespoon cheese)

If you can't find mâche, use butter lettuce.

How to Make It

Step 1

Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Combine 1 tablespoon vinegar, 1 teaspoon oil, 1/2 teaspoon pepper, and 3/8 teaspoon salt; rub evenly over surface of steak. Coat grill pan with cooking spray. Add steak to pan, and cook for 5 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Remove steak from pan, and let stand 5 minutes. Cut the steak diagonally across the grain into thin slices.

Step 2

While steak cooks, combine remaining 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar, remaining 1 teaspoon oil, remaining 1/2 teaspoon pepper, remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, radishes, and cucumber in a large bowl, and toss well to coat. Add mâche; toss gently to combine. Serve the steak with salad. Sprinkle evenly with cheese.

Super-easy. Liked the small hit of vinegar on the raw steak (we used petite sirloin instead of flank because it was on sale). Served with steamed cauliflower.

I had never heard of mache, but I was able to find a bag of Organic Mache at Trader Joe's. I expected it to have a bitter or peppery flavor like agugala, but it was actually quite mild. This salad was excellent and I always love blue cheese with steak.
