Sirloin tips are sometimes labeled steakhouse-style steak tips; the cut also goes by “sirloin flap meat.” If it isn't available, flat-iron steak is a good alternative, but make sure it is about 1 inch thick. A slightly underripe pear—any variety is fine—works best in the salad, as its texture is firm and crisp. To cook the steak indoors, heat the broiler with a rack positioned about 4 inches from the heat. After patting the pieces dry, place them on a wire rack set in a rimmed baking sheet and cook until 125°F at the center, 7 to 10 minutes, turning the meat halfway through. To make this recipe gluten-free, substitute an equal amount of tamari for the soy sauce; be sure to double-check that your tamari does not contain gluten.




Don’t marinate the steak longer than 30 minutes or it will be too salty.

Made this, not ideally, in a broiler. But it was well-flavored and paired nicely with the salad.
