Dijon Mustard, Balsamic Vinegar Marinated Flank Steak on Microgreens


IMG_0034Every week I go to the Green City Market. In the summer, I usually go twice! This year, there was a new vendor in town: American Pride Microfarms. He grows a ton of microgreens, which are basically tiny broccoli, kale, amaranth, sunflower sprouts. The list is endless. According to Brad at American Pride Microfarms, they’re 4-40x more nutritious than the full grown plant. Brad is awesome too. You can even get him to sharpen your knives if you actually remember to bring them to the market. It took me nearly 3 months to bring my knives but they’re chopping like brand new knives now.

I marinated this steak with dijon mustard, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, and garlic and gave a bite to my roommate and she made it herself the very next day. Serve it over the delicious microgreens and you’ve got tons of flavor packed into your bite.
