1 skirt steak, fat trimmed

1 tablespoon of olive oil

Salt and pepper, for seasoning

2 tablespoons of unsalted butter

1/4 cup of light brown sugar

2 large pears, cored and cut into medium-sized chunks

1 tablespoon of sugar

3/4 cup of chopped pecans

¼ cup of crumbled gorgonzola cheese

4 cups of baby arugula

For the Mustard Vinaigrette

1 tablespoon of dijon mustard

3 tablespoons of red wine vinegar

1/2 teaspoon of sugar

1/3 cup of olive oil

Salt and pepper, to taste



Drizzle a skillet with olive oil and cook steak for approximately 10 minutes, seasoning with salt and pepper if desired.

Melt butter in a separate skillet. Add brown sugar and stir until sugar is dissolved, then add pear chunks. Heat for approximately 5 minutes, then stir in pecans for 1 or 2 minutes.

Arrange steak and pears over arugula. Top with remaining ingredients and dressing.
