Tagliata Con Rucola – Italian Steak and Arugula Salad


Deviously simple but delicious way to have a *light* steak meal. Very low carb.

Tagliata Con Rucola – Italian Steak and Arugula Salad

Recipe adapted from Trader Joe’s.


  • 1 pound beef rib eye steak (one inch thick)
  • Salt
  • Black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon dried oregano

  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar (or 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar)

  • Additional toppings (optional; I added thinly shaved onion and heirloom tomato slices)


Step 1

Season steak with salt, pepper and oregano, then grill or broil until rare, 2-3 minutes per side.

Step 2

Rest steak 5 minutes, then thinly slice.

Step 3

Toss the meat and meat juices with the arugula, then drizzle with oilive oil and vinegar and toss again.

    • Thanks. It is pretty easy. But most of all I love not having a gi-normous pan of lasagne leftover when it’s just the two of us here. This contrasts to when I used to make lasagne as a professional, and would have hundreds of servings. It is indeed a much smaller world now. But a lot more fun! ~Sue
