Cook: 15 minutes
Servings: Serves 4
1 pound beef top sirloin steak, cut 1-inch thick
2 tsp. coarse ground black pepper
1 tsp. coarse salt
2 medium heads Boston lettuce

1/2 cup pine nuts, toasted
2 Tbsp. orange juice
2 Tbsp. red wine vinegar
1 Tbsp. olive oil

Rub steak with salt and pepper. Grill over medium coals 14-15 minutes for medium rare.
Meanwhile, tear lettuce into bite-sized pieces and place in large bowl or platter. Sprinkle with Blue cheese, berries and nuts.
