  • 3 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 4 navel oranges
  • 1½ tablespoons white-wine vinegar
  • 1½ teaspoons honey

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Sprinkle both sides of steak with ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper. Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add the steak and cook to desired doneness, 6 to 8 minutes per side for medium (145°F). Tent with foil and let stand for 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, grate 1 teaspoon zest and squeeze ¼ cup juice from one of the oranges. Whisk the zest and juice, the remaining 2 teaspoon oil, vinegar, honey, garlic, mustard, paprika, rosemary and the remaining ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper in a small bowl.
  3. Peel the remaining 3 oranges and slice into rounds. Slice the steak thinly across the grain. Place arugula on a serving platter; top with the steak, the orange slices, onion, goat cheese (or feta) and pecans. Drizzle with the vinaigrette.
