One 1lb beef flat iron steak
3 tablespoons Mother Earth red wine vinegar
Salt & pepper
1/4 C extra virgin olive oil
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
1/4 C chopped parsley
1. Season the steak lightly with salt and pepper. In a resealable plastic bag, combine the olive oil, vinegar, crushed red pepper and parsley. Add the steak to the bag and turn to coat completely with the marinade. Refrigerate, turning occasionally, for at least 6 hours and up to 12 hours.
2. Remove the steak from the marinade and bring to room temperature.
3. Light a grill or preheat a grill pan and brush with vegetable oil. Season the steak with salt and pepper and grill over moderately high heat until well-browned outside and medium-rare within, about 3 1/2 minutes per side. Transfer to a carving board and let rest for 5 minutes. Thinly slice the steak against the grain and serve.
While the pasta cooks combine:
1 tbsp. high-quality extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp. organic Mother Earth red wine vinegar
Stir well, until the vinegar breaks into droplets. When the pasta is done, toss it with the olive oil combination, top with fresh-grated Parmesan cheese and about 1 tbsp. freshly-minced basil. Serve immediately and enjoy!
