Wow, this was a lovely way to cook our steak tonight. We used rump steak and our own home grown rocket (arugula). I added in extra sugar as the balsamic was too tart for my liking-next time I would use maybe a of cup balsamic and reduce it down as that makes for a nicer sweet finish that doesn't need any sugar. I made the mistake of chilling the butter and it really didn't melt over the steak-leave it at room temperature and it would be perfect!
Ohhhh this is a keeper! I loved everything about this steak salad. The parmesan butter flavoring atop the steak was a special treat. The glaze was packed with flavor and made for a great dressing. I did use romaine lettuce instead of arugula. I will definitely be making this again! ~Made for May Aussie/NZ Swap~
This is one of my favorite steak salads to prepare. I was just about to post it myself and found it on here already! I always double parmesan butter, cook my rib eye for 4 minutes a side for medium rare, and usually add quite a bit extra balsamic. Usually I substitute honey for the brown sugar as well. This is just delicious!! A must try! Thanks rose's mom
I really enjoyed the flavor combination of this salad! I agree with Vicki, the reduced glaze has a fantastic taste but I wish there was more, lol. Maybe I would double the ingredients for that next time. The price of arugula was really high, so I subbed romaine lettuce. This salad was enjoyed greatly by both DH and myself.
The tart vinegar reduction really made this salad. Next time will, however, drizzle a little EVOO over greens too. The salad needed to be dressed a little more because the reduction makes a very scant amount (or perhaps mine reduced too much). Super simple, super easy, super quick but elegant dinner.
