Seared Steak Salad

Friday nights dinner was this salad. Pretty simple to make but the results are wonderful.

Season steak and bring up to room temperature. Wash the salad. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Heat up olive oil in a pan to medium high. Douse steak with olive oil and then place in pan. Sear on one side for a couple of minutes, then flip and repeat. Place pan in oven for 12 minutes for medium rare. While the steak is finishing chop up some peppers, green onions and avocado. Rinse cherry tomatoes. Pull steak from oven (remember it's hot!) and remove steak and let rest. Return pan to high heat on stove and deglaze with red wine. Add chopped garlic and shallots and reduce. Return to the steak and slice in thin strips. Check reduction and if ready remove from heat. Start assembling the plates beginning with the layer of salad. Add other elements as desired. Add cream to the reduction and season to taste. Drizzle over the completed salad. Pour yourself a nice glass of wine and enjoy!
