For the Tomatoes & Salad Greens

Instructions

  • Place steak in a large bowl or a large ziploc bag.
  • In a separate mixing bowl combine olive oil, balsamic vinegar, lemon juice, worcestershire sauce, garlic, salt and pepper; reserve about ¼-cup of the marinade and set it aside for later to use as salad dressing.
  • Pour the rest of the marinade over the steak; cover and let marinate for at least 30 minutes on the counter, or up to 4 hours in the refrigerator.
  • In the meantime, work on the mushrooms: Set a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat, add butter and let it melt.
  • Stir in thyme and rosemary, then stir in the mushrooms; cook for 3 to 4 minutes, or until mushrooms are tender.
  • Remove mushrooms from skillet and set aside.
  • Return skillet to the burner and increase heat to high.
  • When skillet is hot, remove steak from marinade, shake off excess liquid, and transfer steak to the hot skillet; cook for 4 minutes, then turn it over and continue to cook for 4 to 6 more minutes, or until internal temperature of the steak registers at 125˚F to 135˚F.
  • Remove steak from skillet and transfer to a cutting board; let sit for 5 to 8 minutes before slicing the steak.
  • Meanwhile, arrange baby spinach leaves and shredded lettuce on a long serving platter or in a large salad bowl.
  • Add tomatoes and mushrooms to the salad.
  • Cut steak across the grain into ¼-inch thick slices.
  • Add slices of steak to the salad.
  • Top with red onions and reserved dressing/marinade.
  • Sprinkle with crumbled feta cheese and serve!
