~To do~

The steak:  Heat your grill or broiler to high, and brush the steak with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.  Place on grill or broiler and cook on each side for 4-5 minutes until done to your liking.  Remove from heat and let rest for 5-10 minutes, then slice thinly.

Quesadilla:  Heat skillet on medium-high.  When hot, add one tortilla and layer on the steak, cheese, onion, rosemary and spinach and season with salt and pepper.  Top with second tortilla, let sit for a minute or two.  When bottom tortilla begins to crisp and brown, use a spatula to carefully turn over and brown the second side.  Cut into wedges and drizzle on a bit of vinegar, or use as a dip.


You can also do this as a burrito.  Swap the 2 6″ tortillas for 1 large, fill will toppings and roll it up.
