Valentine’s Steak

As seen on Living Dayton on WDTN!

1 lb top sirloin or hanger steak
3 Tbsp DLM Pink Peppercorns, coarsely ground
1 Tbsp fresh rosemary, chopped
DLM Vera Jane’s Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
1 cup pomegranate juice
1 Tbsp brown sugar
1 Tbsp Aunt Angie's Balsamic Vinegar of Modena
4 cups arugula
Salt and pepper to taste

Season the steak generously on both sides with salt, peppercorns, and rosemary.

In a sauté pan, heat the olive oil and sauté the steak until desired doneness, about 5 minutes a side for medium rare. Remove and let rest.

In the same pan add pomegranate juice, brown sugar, and balsamic vinegar. Boil until reduced to scant 1/4 cup glaze, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes. Season to taste with salt.

Toss arugula with an additional drizzle of olive oil and season to taste with salt. Divide arugula evenly among 4 plates. Slice steak; divide and arrange alongside arugula. Drizzle glaze generously around steak and serve.

Makes 3-4 servings
