Wash produce before use
Prep the onion, bell pepper, and steaks
- Peel and thinly slice the onion. Set aside ½ cup [1 cup] for the salad and the rest to cook with the bell pepper.
- Remove the stem, ribs, and seeds from the bell pepper; thinly slice the pepper.
- Set aside half the steak sauce for serving.
- Pat the steaks dry with a paper towel; season with salt and pepper.
In a large bowl, combine the steaks and half the steak sauce, turning to coat both sides. Let stand while you prepare the salad ingredients.
Prep the salad ingredients and dressing
- Juice half the orange; save the remaining orange half for another use. [Juice 1 orange; save the remaining orange for another use.]
- Roll the kumquats between your palms until the skin looks shiny to release the oils. Thinly slice the kumquats crosswise; discard any large seeds.
- Coarsely chop the pistachios.
In a large bowl, stir together the honey, 2 tablespoons [¼ cup] orange juice, and 2 tablespoons [¼ cup] oil. Season the dressing to taste with salt and pepper.
Cook the steaks
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the steaks.
For New York strips and rib-eyes:
Cook, turning once, until well browned, 2 to 3 minutes per side for medium-rare.
For filet mignons:
Cook, turning frequently, until well browned, 8 to 12 minutes for medium-rare.
Transfer the cooked steaks to a cutting board to rest for 5 minutes. Cut the steaks into ½-inch-thick slices. Do not clean the pan.
Cook the onion and bell pepper
In the same pan used for the steaks, if dry, add 2 to 3 teaspoons oil. Warm over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add all except ½ cup [1 cup] onion, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to brown, 3 to 5 minutes. Add the bell pepper, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from the heat. When the vegetables are almost done, finish the salad.
Assemble the salad
To the bowl with the dressing, add the mixed greens, kumquats, pistachios, and remaining onion and toss to combine. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Transfer the steaks to individual plates and top with the onion and bell pepper. Serve the salad and remaining steak sauce on the side.
