  • 1 beef Strip Steak, Boneless
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1-1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 12 slices French bread, cut 1 inch thick
  • 12 arugula leaves
Horseradish Whip
  • 2 teaspoon horseradish
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
  • 3 tablespoon chives


Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C). Heat large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Season steak evenly on both sides with salt and pepper. Add olive oil and place steak in skillet; cook strip steak 12 to 15 minutes for medium rare (62.8°C) to medium (71.1°C) doneness, turning occasionally. Remove steak and set aside to rest. 

Cook’s Tip: Use leftover strip roast instead of steaks. Slice roast into 1/4 pieces. Reheat in a covered medium skillet over low heat about 4 to 6 minutes. 
Place sliced bread in single layer on baking sheet. Bake in 350°F(177°C) oven for about 10 minutes or until lightly toasted but not brown. Set aside.
  1. Combine horseradish and heavy cream in a medium size mixing bowl. Mix over medium speed for about 5 minutes or until you form whip cream. Once formed remove bowl from mixer and fold in fresh chives and parmesan cheese. 
  1. Spread 2 teaspoon horseradish whip onto each bread piece. Slice steak in 12 equal size pieces; top with steak and fresh arugula.
