PREP: 10 min. ACTIVE: 15 min. PASSIVE: 10 min. DIFFICULTY Easy


  • Pre Top Sirloin Steak, room temperature and patted dry
  • 1/2 tsp Redmond's Real Salt
  • 1 tsp grapeseed oil or other high-heat cooking oil
  • 1 large peach, ripe and sliced into thin wedges
  • 1 large or 2 small heirloom tomatoes, cut into wedges
  • 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 bunch basil, thinly sliced into ribbons
  • 1/2 tsp poppy seeds
  • salt and fresh black pepper, to taste
    • 1 small peach, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
    • 1/2 cup raw unsalted cashews
    • 1 tbsp orange juice
    • 5 tbsp water
    • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar or apple cider vinegar
    • 1/2 tsp poppy seeds
      1. Season Top Sirloin on all sides with salt and then oil.
      2. Heat skillet to medium-high heat. Splash with water to make sure it's hot.
      3. Sear on both sides for about 4 minutes or until internal temperature reads at least 105. Set aside for 6 minutes.
      4. Prepare the dressing by putting all the ingredients besides the seeds in a blender. Blend until creamy and chunks have disappeared. If it's too chunky add more water, 1 tbsp at a time.
      5. Add poppy seeds last, pulse them into the dressing so they are still visible.
      6. In a large bowl, toss sliced peaches, tomatoes, red onion, and basil with a few tablespoons of peach poppyseed dressing.
      7. Cut the steak against the grain into bite-sized slices.
      8. Place salad onto a plate and tuck pieces of steak within. Sprinkle with fresh ground black pepper.
