I sprinkled the Steak with salt and a black pepper. Cook the Steak for 3 minutes on each side to MEDIUM.

To make the Sauce, I just put a bit of a heavy cream and black pepper into the pan, where I have cooked the steak. Pour the sauce over the steak and vegetables.

Enjoy!

Set the beets aside to cool with the aluminum still on.

Place the greens on the plate, add cut beets and the goat cheese. I have used for this dish the sauce form the steak. Serve immediately.

If you want to make a Vinaigrette for the greens here is a little tip:

  • Mix together honey, Dijon mustard, red wine vinegar and shallots. Add salt and black pepper and a bit of olive oil. Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary.

Enjoy!
