Serves 2 people

Ingredients

  • 1 Mojito (2 Tbsp. fresh chopped mint, 2 Tbsp. sugar, 2 oz. white rum, 1 lime, juiced, 2 oz. soda)
  • 1 (8-10 oz.) lean sirloin steak
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 head of Romaine lettuce, washed and chopped
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, seeded, small diced
  • ½ red onion, small diced

  • 8-10 cherry tomatoes, halved

Dressing:

  • 2 tablespoons chopped mint
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon white distilled vinegar
  • juice of one lime
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Directions:

In a small bowl, whisk Mojito and 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Pour over steak and marinate for 20-30 minutes.

Season both sides of steak with salt and pepper and sear or grill until golden brown on the outside and desired doneness inside. (Chef recommends medium rare or medium.)
Once cooked, set steak aside to rest and slightly cool.
