Grilled Steak with Arugula Salad

I made this delicious Grilled Steak with Arugula Salad, photographed it, edited the photos, and I still had time to sit down and enjoy a leisurely lunch all while vacuuming my floors at the same time!! No, I don't have a twin, a clone, or 10 arms either! Wanna know my secret??

Like Jane Jetson, I have a robot! Not one quite as advanced as Rosie, but still awesome none-the-less! It's a Roomba and my little guy has been cleaning my floors for years! I love him! Yes, it's a him and I named him Roombie! It's a Roomba thing...<grin>

Just when I thought my iRobot couldn't get any better, it did!! My Roomba didn't get a software upgrade, and I still haven't figured out how to get him to do the laundry, but he is working longer for me on each charge thanks to my Lithium Power Inc. Replacement Battery! As a result, my house is cleaner, and I have more time to spend enjoying lunch!!

Forgive me while I interrupt this recipe and take a moment to share one of my new favorite things! You'll find the recipe a little further down the page today, I'm straying from my norm a bit, because I was so excited to share this with you!

Lithium Power Inc saw my review on the iRobot Roomba 585 Model and contacted me to inquire if I wanted to test the first and only lithium replacement battery that is fully compatible with iRobot Roomba series 500, 600, 700 and 800. You bet I do!

I was excited to see what this battery could do, as it came with promises of lasting twice as long on a charge as the typical Roomba battery! I was skeptical to say the least, but willing to give it a chance! Don changed out the battery in mere minutes, with ease, and I got it on the charger!

While Roombie was doing his thing, I was able to get some work done. An hour went by and he was still plugging along. I decided to go ahead and prepare my latest recipe for the blog. I even had time to photograph it, and he was still going!! I edited the photos and he was still going... I got to sit down and enjoy my lunch while watching my little robot just keep on working!! 

My little Roomba ran for over 4 hours!! 4 hours y'all!! That's more than twice as long as the original Roomba battery! I was so proud!! He was like the Energizer Bunny!! He just kept going and going and going.... and all the floors were clean even before he was out of power! This was big!! HUGE!! Like, time to throw a parade kinda big! That's no joke!

If you are in the market for a new Roomba battery, you'll definitely want to check out Lithium Power's battery! Way more bang for your buck!! Visit their website to get complete product information and to purchase directly from them with free 2-3 day domestic shipping!

Disclosure: Although, I received the product at no charge, I have been using the Lithium Power Inc battery for a little over a month now and all of the opinions expressed in this review are my own as a result of my actual experiences with the product. If my opinion changes over time, I will update this review.

Back to our regularly scheduled recipe! This Grilled Steak with Arugula Salad is a healthy and delicious, low carb meal! I love the tangy dressing and topping it off with Parmesan is tres good!! Enjoy!

Grilled Steak with Arugula Salad

Ingredients

  • 1 lb Skirt Steak
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon freshly minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 4 cups baby arugula or spinach if you prefer
  • Shaved fresh Parmesan Cheese

Instructions

  1. Remove the skirt steak from the fridge and allow it to come to room temperature. Salt and pepper the steak on both sides, generously. Combine 2 tablespoons softened butter with 1 teaspoon freshly minced garlic and a pinch of salt. Rub the garlic butter all over both sides of the steak.
  2. Preheat an outdoor grill or a grill pan to 375 degrees F. Grill steak for 3 minutes on both sides until it is mid-rare. Adjust the cooking times as needed depending on the thickness of your steak. Remove the steak from the grill pan to a cutting board and allow to rest for 10 minutes. Tip: I place my cutting board onto a foil lined cookie sheet to catch and drippings and make for easier clean-up.
  3. Combine 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives, 2 tablespoons lemon juice, 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Mix well. Give it a taste and adjust seasonings to your liking.
  4. Place the arugula into a serving bowl and drizzle with the dressing. Toss to coat. Slice steak thinly against the grain and toss in with the arugula. Top with Parmesan Cheese as you like and enjoy!
Yield: 4 Servings

    2. If the Roomba picks up dog hair, I'll take it right now. Our dog has shed so much we could knit together several other dogs just from the fur she has shed!

    3. It picks up everything, Michele! Sometimes it gets things you would rather it didn't, but that's a whole other story and not a pretty one!! If you get a Roomba be sure to ask me about it though ;) haha

  6. Always nice to have a fast and tasty salad recipe. I love arugula, which gives you a somewhat bitter but fresh bite. Both it and spinach are healthy and delicious.

    1. Thanks, Sandra! Too funny about the cats! When our dog was younger he would bark and bark at the Roomba after we first got it, but as he aged he just gave it nasty looks when it came near him haha. Gotta love our furry friends!
