I read this fabulous recipe at some point over the past few months….only I can’t remember where so I am trying to re-create it from the picture I have in my head and the ingredients that I could recall.
Doesn’t it look yummy!?
So I started with 4 small oranges and zested them to get as much schmoochy peel as I could.
I smeared the zested peel all over 4 steaks and then seasoned with salt and pepper. I put a big drizzle of olive oil in my cast iron skillet and turned the gas to high. I added the steaks and cooked for 3 minutes on both sides.
While I was waiting for the steaks, I cut up the oranges….getting rid of all of the white. I mixed in some olive oil, lemon juice, chopped onion, chopped romaine, chopped olives, and minced garlic with the cut oranges. Lastly – I added in some mint. Awesome.
When the steaks were done, I pulled them from the cast iron pan and cut them across the grain.
Once the salad mixture was on the plate…I searched through my fridge and found some soft mozzarella. I pulled off some chunks and placed them on top of the salad. Hey! Done…and boy was it good.
