Instructions

Wash produce before use

1

Prep and cook the steaks

  • Pat the steaks dry with a paper towel; season generously with salt and pepper.
For the top sirloins:
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the steaks and cook, turning frequently, until well browned, 6 to 8 minutes for medium-rare. Transfer to a plate to rest for 5 minutes. Do not clean the pan.

For the New York strips and rib-eyes:
In a large frying pan over high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the steaks and cook, turning once, until well browned, 1 to 2 minutes per side for medium-rare. Transfer to a plate to rest for 5 minutes. Do not clean the pan.

While the steaks cook and rest, prepare the vegetables.

2

Prep the vegetables

  • Cut the mushrooms into quarters.
  • Scrape off any seeds from the roasted red peppers; coarsely chop any large pieces.
  • Strip the parsley leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves.
  • Trim the root end from the romaine; coarsely chop the leaves.

3

Cook the mushrooms and mirepoix

In the same pan used for the steaks, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the mushrooms and mirepoix and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften, 4 to 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.
While the mushrooms and mirepoix cook, prepare the vinaigrette.

4

Make the vinaigrette; assemble the salad

In a medium bowl, stir together the lemon vinaigrette base and 2 tablespoons [¼ cup] oil. Add the mushrooms and mirepoix, red peppers, and parsley and stir to coat. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Set aside ¼ cup [½ cup] mushroom mixture to garnish the steaks.
To the bowl with the remaining mushroom mixture, add the romaine and toss to combine.

Serve

Transfer the steaks and mushroom “scungilli” salad to individual plates. Top the steaks with the reserved mushroom mixture and serve.
