Tony Mantuano's Steak Tagliata with Arugula

Tony Mantuano's Steak Tagliata with Arugula
From Wine Bar Food

Prep time:just as long as it takes to heat the grill
Grill time: 8-10 minutes
Resting time: 10 minutes

Serves 4 as appetizer or 2 as main course


1 12 oz strip loin (I used 2 smaller ones)
Sea salt & Freshly ground black pepper to taste
handful of baby arugula
Extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp fresh rosemary, chopped fine
juice of 1/4 lemon

1. Before grilling, allow the steaks to come to room temperature (at least 30 minutes).

2. Grill steaks 5 minutes per side for medium-rare. Remove from the grill and lightly cover with foil for 10 minutes. This allows the meat to relax and become more tender.

3. Once steak has rested, slice it across the grain. Sprinkle the meat with the olive oil and rosemary. Squeeze the lemon over the arugula and drizzle with a little olive oil.
