  • Active Time 35m
  • Total Time 35m

ingredients

  • For Salad:
  • 4 medium tomatoes, cut into wedges
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced sweet onion
  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon distilled white vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • For Steak:
  • 1 pound boneless rib-eye steak, about 1-inch thick, trimmed of fat and cut into 4 portions
  • 1/2 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • Chimichurri sauce, for serving
  • Tip: Meat-Buying Tips:

  • Make sure that packaged meat isn't past its "sell-by" date and that there's not much moisture in the packaging.

  • Touch it if possible—it should be firm and not soft.

  • Look for bright red (not gray) meat. Vacuum-packed meat will be darker looking and should turn red as soon as it's exposed to air.
