  • 1 flank steak (1 1/2 pounds)
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 6 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons cider vinegar
  • 1 head romaine lettuce, torn (about 4 cups)
  • 1 bunch arugula, torn (about 4 cups)
  • 2 Bosc pears, sliced
  • 1/2 cup toasted pecans, coarsely chopped


  1. Heat broiler, with rack 6 inches from heat. Pat steak dry with paper towels, season with salt and pepper, and rub with oil. Place on a foil-lined rimmed baking sheet. Broil 6 minutes per side for medium-rare. Transfer to a cutting board; tent loosely with foil and let rest 10 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk buttermilk, mayonnaise, and vinegar. Season. Thinly slice steak against the grain. In a bowl, toss greens with steak, pears, pecans, and dressing.
