Seared sirloin with rocket and balsamic vinegar

This isn't really a recipe, but it worked for a great quick and easy weeknight dinner. I used olive oil infused with chile to give the dish a little bit of an extra kick.

One year ago: Lamb with Celeriac
Two years ago: Green Curry Shrimp with Rice
Three years ago: Almost Eggs Benedict

Seared sirloin with rocket and balsamic vinegar (from Twelve)
500g sirloin steak (1" thick)
120g arugula, rinsed, dried, and trimmed
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar

1. On either a cast iron griddle on stovetop or an outdoor grill, cook stead for 6 - 8 minutes on each side until nicely seared. Transfer meat to cutting board and sprinkle with salt. Let rest.
2. Cut meat into 3/4" slices, slightly on the diagonal.
3. Divide arugula onto plates. Add meat over arugula. Drizzle with oil and vinegar. Grind on some pepper and serve.
