Tuscan-Style Steak with Arugula and Parmesan

5 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, Use very best quality!
1 tablespoon fresh-squeezed lemon juice
2 medium cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley leaves
1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano leaves
Salt and coarsely ground black pepper
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
4 boneless strip steaks, 1 to 2 inches thick, trimmed of exterior gristle
8 cups loosely packed arugula, washed and dried
3 ounces Parmesan cheese, cut into thin shavings

Whisk together olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, parsley, oregano and a pinch each of salt and pepper in a small bowl until smooth; set aside.

Heat vegetable oil in a large, heavy-bottomed skillet over medium-high heat until smoking. Meanwhile, season steaks liberally with salt and pepper. Lay steaks in pan and cook, without moving, until a well-browned crust forms, about 5 to 6 minutes. Using tongs, flip steaks. Reduce heat to medium. Cook 3 to 4 minutes more for rare (120 degrees F on an instant-read thermometer), or 5 to 6 minutes for medium-rare (125 degrees F). Transfer steaks to a cutting board, tent with foil, and let rest 5 minutes.

Divide arugula evenly among 4 individual plates. Cut each steak crosswise into thin strips and arrange steak over arugula. Drizzle any juices that collected from the meat over the greens. Re-whisk dressing and drizzle it over steak and greens. Sprinkle with Parmesan and serve immediately.

Makes 4 servings.
