Step Two

Season the steak with five spice powder and a good sprinkle of sea salt. Set aside for up to 30 minutes. Grill the steak until medium rare, about 125F. Remove, and after 10 minutes slice into 3/4” thick pieces. Toss the salad ingredients except for the sesame seeds on a large platter and season with salt and pepper. Top with the steak and the sesame seeds.

No. 2 : Kitchen Scoop

*Olive Oil Dipped Onion

Peel an onion and cut it in half, leaving the stem end intact. Spear the onion half with a long fork. Pour a 1 TB of olive oil on a saucer and rub the cut onion half in it. Rub the grill, (or grill pan), with the onion and then using the fork, “paint” the grill with the onion half. This adds oil and flavor to your grill.

No. 3 : Clever Idea

Have you ever used Five Spice Powder? It’s a warm spice blend of star anise, cloves, cinnamon, Sichuan peppercorns and fennel seeds. Great in stir frys and Asian food, you can find it in the regular grocery store spice aisle.

Las Rocas Garnacha
Around  $13.00

This yummy 100% old vine Grenache (70-100 years old) will bring bright fruit and  medium acidity to the table. You’ll enjoy the flavors of cherries and blackberries with a little spice –  very typical of a Spanish Garnacha – and a little reminiscent of the fragrant five spice powder we used to season the steak.
