Preparation: 20 minutes
Cooking: 11 minutes
Total: 31 minutes



For Salad:

  • 5ozbaby arugula,(about 6 cups)
  • 2tbspolive oil,plus more for serving
  • salt and pepper,to taste
  • ½cupparmesan cheese,(1 oz), shaved

For Steak:

  • vegetable oil,for the grill
  • 2sirloin steaks,(1½ inch thick), (about 1¾ lbs)
  • 2lemons,cut into wedges, for serving
  • olive oil,for serving


  1. In a bowl, toss the arugula with 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Sprinkle generously with salt and pepper and toss again. Mix in the Parmesan Cheese. Divide among four plates.

  2. For charcoal grills, fill a grill chimney with charcoal and light it. When the coals are hot (they should be covered with a layer of fine gray ash) empty the coals into the grill and push them to one side of the grill to make higher heat and lower heat cooking zones. Set the grate in place and cover the grill. Preheat the grate for 5 minutes.

  3. For gas grills, heat one burner to high and one to low. Fold a small piece of paper towel to make a 2-inch square, and pour a few tablespoons of oil into a shallow bowl. With tongs, dip the square into the oil, and brush the grates.

  4. Brush the steaks with olive oil and sprinkle them on both sides with salt and pepper. Place them on the hot side of the grill and cook for 3 to 4 minutes until browned and slightly charred on one side.

  5. Turn the steaks over and continue to grill 3 minutes longer, or until well browned. If the steaks aren’t quite cooked to desired doneness at this point, move them to the cooler side of the grill to finish cooking. Cook to an internal temperature of 135 degrees F for medium-rare, 140 degrees F for medium, or 150 degrees F for well done.

  6. Transfer the steaks to a cutting board or platter, tent loosely with foil and let rest 5 minutes before slicing.

  7. Slice the steaks and divide the slices between the plates, placing them on top of the arugula. Drizzle with olive oil and squeeze lemon juice over the top. Sprinkle with more salt and pepper, if desired.
