Let's Make It
Place steak and vegetables in large shallow dish. Mix next 5 ingredients in medium bowl until blended; gradually whisk in oil. Pour 1/2 cup over steak and vegetables; turn to evenly coat vegetables and both sides of steak. Refrigerate 1 hour to marinate.
Heat grill to medium heat. Remove steak and vegetables from marinade; discard marinade. Grill steak 6 min. on each side or until medium doneness (160°F). Meanwhile, grill vegetables 2 to 3 min. on each side or until crisp-tender.
Remove steak from grill; let stand 5 min. Meanwhile, cook remaining steak sauce mixture on medium heat 5 min. or until heated through, stirring occasionally.
Cut steak across the grain into thin slices. Cover platter with salad greens; top with meat, vegetables and warmed steak sauce mixture.
Prepare using basil pesto.
How to Slice Cooked Steak for Most Tenderness
Cooked steak, especially the less tender cuts of meat, should always be allowed to rest, loosely covered, before being sliced. This standing time allows the juices to redistribute throughout the meat so it remains juicy. This standing time can range from 4 to 5 min. for thin steaks, to 8 to 10 min. for thicker steaks. For best results, slice cooked steaks across the grain before serving. Place the unsliced meat on a cutting board and look for the direction of the grain. (The meat will have small lines running in one direction.) You may need to slice the meat in 2 different directions to determine the direction of the grain. Use a sharp slicing knife to cut the meat across the fibers into thin slices. If you have an electric knife, you can use that to quickly slice the meat.
