Instructions
Time to marinate that steak. Don't be lazy. Marinate the crap out of it. You won't be disappointed. The longer the better. I only marinated it for about 8 hours or so, but longer would have been even more awesome.
  1. Add all of your 'marinating the steak' ingredients to a gallon sized and shake it around. Give it some loving here. Work it.
  2. Now throw the bag in the fridge to marinate for a while.
  3. Once the london broil has marinated for AT LEAST 2-3 hours, pull it out of the fridge to let sit on the counter and come to room temperature. While it comes to room temperature, heat up your grill.
  4. Make your grill SUPER hot so you can sear both sides of your london broil for 1-2 minutes/side. Once it is does searing, turn down the heat to medium and cook for about 5-6 minutes/side.
  5. While the london broil is cooking (don't forget to flip it after 5-6 minutes), begin cooking up the ingredients for your salad. Add your chopped bacon to a large skillet, once it has oozed a bit of fat to the pan, add your sliced red onions and let them cook down until translucent.
  6. Once your red onions become translucent, add your pearl onions to the mix to cook down for about 3-4 minutes, then add your dates and walnuts. Cook all the ingredients together, adding just a bit of salt and pepper at the end.
  7. Your steak should be done cooking at this point. Don't forget about it and ruin the entire meal. Kidding. But once it is done cooking, put it on a plate and let it sit for around 30 minutes so the juices don't come spilling out.
  8. While the steak sits and ponders life, make your salad dressing.
  9. Add all dressing ingredients to your food processor and mix well to combine. This dressing a bit thicker than usual dressing, so if you're not a fan of that, add a bit more oil and vinegar to make it runny.
  10. Once your dressing is made, thinly slice your london broil to desired thickness.
  11. Throw your chopped greens into a large bowl, top with your date/onion/bacon/walnut mixture along with blackberries, steak, and salad dressing.
  12. Consume with a smile on your face while all the flavors make a happy play land in your mouth.
