At the Break of Day

          Grilled Steak, Heirloom Tomatoes & Shaved Parmesan Atop a Bed of Greens

I have a natural curiosity about things, especially when it comes to food. One of my favorite questions to ask friends is, 'If I could cook you only one dish, what would that be?'. Last week I asked this question  to one of my dearest friends, and the response is what inspired this post. I could not resist the idea of creating a dish that invokes such ease and comfort as that of an unforgettable friendship. The recipe contains only the ingredients listed in the title, feel free to add a salad dressing of olive oil and vinegar if desired, but otherwise it tastes fantastic without.

Grilled Steak, Heirloom Tomatoes & Shaved Parmesan Recipe

Makes: 3 servings
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes

Quality steak of choice: I used a ribeye, but can use flank or sirloin
Mixed greens, Arugula and Romaine
2 Medium - Large Heirloom Tomatoes, Sliced Thin
1 Parmesan Block, Shaved to Desired Amount
Salt & Pepper

Sprinkle the steak with salt and pepper on both sides. Heat the grill to a high heat and sear the steak for 2-3 minutes on each side for medium rare. Remove steak from the grill and let sit for 10 minutes.

Mix together all greens and place on large serving platter. Placed sliced tomatoes on top.

Once steak has been sitting, slice thin and place on top of the tomatoes. Top with shaved parmesan.
