Flank Steak with Red Wine Vinegar and Greens: Low Carb

Long story short – I was planning to make this tonight, but ended up in a car accident (nothing serious) so Dino made it instead. He used the cast iron skillet and romaine lettuce. It was pretty good!

Flank Steak with Red Wine Vinegar and Greens: Low Carb
Food Network Kitchens

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 lb. flank steak, cut into 2 equal pieces
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 clove garlic, minced
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano leaves or 1 teaspoon dried
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
5 ounces (1/2 bag) Italian salad blend

Difficulty: Easy
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Yield: 2 servings

Heat the olive oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Season both sides of the steaks with salt and pepper to taste. When the oil is hot and shimmering, add the steaks and cook, tuning each once, until seared and rich mahogany, about 6 minutes per side. Transfer the steaks to a plate. Add the garlic to the pan and cook, stirring occasionally, until aromatic, about 1 minute. Pull the skillet from the heat, add the vinegar, and use a wooden spoon to scrape up any browned bits that cling to the pan. Stir in the oregano, butter, and any juices from the steak, until the butter melts. Add the greens to the skillet, season with salt and pepper, and toss just until they begin to wilt, about 30 seconds. Slice the meat against the grain into thin slices, divide between 2 plates, top with the greens and the pan juices. Serve.
