The steak is a flat iron steak (grass fed beef), we used a barbeque spice rub. This spice rub has been used for several things and I keep a jar of it in our spice drawer.
From the "Grassfed Gourmet Cookbook" by Shannon Hayes.
Barbeque Spice Rub
1/2 cup chili powder
3 tablespoons freshly ground black pepper
4 tablespoons sugar
3 tablespoons coarse salt
2 tablespoons paprika
All you need to do is rub this on the beef and let it stand for about 20 minutes or longer. Then grill steak to the doneness you desire.

The salad portion consists of green leaf lettuce, tomato, carrots, cucumbers, mushrooms and a little shaving of romano cheese. We are using a homemade french dressing that we made the other day.
