  • Season the steak with thyme, black pepper, and salt and drizzle 1 tbsp olive oil over the steak. Set aside.
  • Heat the griddle pan or (cast iron skillet) and cook the seasoned steak until it's cooked to your liking. For a 2 cm (3/4 inch) thick steak, cook each side 1.5 mins for rare, 3 mins for medium, 5 mins for well done. Then cut the steak into about 3 cm (1 1/4 inch) thick slices. Set aside.

  • Place the spinach, onions, and red pepper on a plate. Top with the cooked mushrooms, grilled steak strips, and crumbled feta cheese.
  • Whisk the 1.5 tbsp olive oil and 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar to make vinaigrette.
  • Drizzle the dressing before serving. It can be served warm or left to cool.
