Dish

Instructions

Steak Rub

  1. Add all ingredients to a bowl and whisk together until combined.

 

Lime Vinaigrette

  1. Add all ingredients to a bowl (a different bowl from the rub obvy) and whisk together until well combined.  See, I like to keep it easy for you guys.  Use a magic bullet or hand blender if you have it.  Easy peasy.

 

Dish

  1. Rinse the steak and pat dry
  2. Cover completely on all sides with the rub and pat it into the steak a little
  3. Place on the counter (or in the fridge) on a plate and let sit for at least 20mins (if longer, probably best in the fridge)
  4. Rinse bunch of kale and shake dry (do not take the elastic off of the bunch as they are easier to grill if they are still together)
  5. Heat BBQ to high heat
  6. Cover with olive oil and set aside
  7. Wash mushrooms and pat dry
  8. Spray with oil and set aside
  9. Rinse pepper and cover with oil then set aside
  10. Slice grape or cherry tomatoes in half and set aside
  11. Once grill is hot, roast the peppers until slightly charred and soft
  12. Slice the pepper into strips or rings
  13. Place oiled kale on the grill
  14. Grill until the leaves start to char, then turn.
  15. Keep grilling and turning until you are all the way around and the kale is cooked and brown on the leaf tips
  16. Set grilled kale on a plate for topping
  17. Place a cast skillet on the hot BBQ or stove and heat until smoking (if you have a cast iron burger press, place it in the skillet to heat as well)
  18. Once the pan is hot and oil added smokes, place mushrooms in the center and press with the hot burger press or a spatula
  19. When the mushrooms have shrunk down and a decent looking brown crust has formed on the pan side, flip and repeat.
  20. When the mushrooms are crusted on all sides, remove from the pan.
  21. You can now use the pan for the steak, or remove the pan from the BBQ and grill the steak.  If using the pan, you can add a knob or two of butter for more flavour
  22. When the steak is cooked to your desired doneness (rare, med rare, well, etc) remove from heat and let it rest for 5-10 mins
  23. While the steak is resting, put the sliced tomatoes on the kale
  24. Grate the carrot over the kale and tomatoes
  25. Sprinkle with the roasted almonds
  26. Drizzle the salad with dressing as desired.
  27. Place the steak on a plate and place the mushrooms on top
  28. Top with the chimichurri or sauce of your choice (or no sauce at all)
  29. Stick a napkin in the front of your shirt and get bizzy
