Beef and Horseradish Salad

Flank Steak is one of those universal pieces of beef that can perform many duties.  It can be used as a substitute for shirt/hanger steak when making Fajitas and it takes marinade very well.  The only caution about Flank Steak is it gets tough the longer you cook it.  If you like your meat well done, Flank Steak is not the cut for you…

1 pound flank steak
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 cups julienne red onions
3 tablespoons finely chopped parsley
3 tablespoons chopped green onions
1 cup mayonnaise

1/2 cup grated horseradish
Juice of one lemon
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon Tabasco
4 cups assorted baby greens
2/3 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
Salt and pepper

Preheat the grill. Season the flank steak with salt, peper and olive oil.

Place the steak on the grill and cook for 3 to 4 minutes on each side for medium-rare.
