Steak Salad

1 Steak
1 tomatoe, cut into wedges
1 red onion, chopped
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1 onion, thinly sliced
1-2 tbsp. Butter
Olive Oil
1 tsp. Molasses
Spinach or lettuce of choice
Dressing of choice, We really like Vidalia Onion Vinegarette by Virgina Brand, or as I call it the Sam's Club dressing.

You can make the steak two ways...the first is to cook it under the broiler on high to your preference. Rub with olive oil, place in pan as close to broiler as you can get it without touching. Cook for 4-6 minutes, turn and cook another 4-6 minutes, again depending on if you want it rare, medium, well done. Remove and season with salt and pepper. Let rest for 5 minutes then slice thinly.
Or you can slice your steak and brown in a skillet with olive oil, remove and set aside. Heat butter up in skillet, thinly slice onion and add to skillet. Saute until beginning to brown, add 1 tsp. of molasses (or more depending on how sweet you want it) and continue cooking for a minute or two more. Add steak back in and heat through.
Place spinach on plate, add steak and onions, tomatoes, red onion, and walnuts drizzle with dressing.
I've made this with and without the caramelized onions, I really prefer it with, but it is just great without too.
Makes 2 servings.
