Cook's Notes:
A perfectly cooked steak can be the launch pad for many delicious dinners, and served with these creamy greens it makes a truly satisfying meal.

Spring greens are the first leafy greens of the year and can be found prepared and shredded in bags in most supermarkets, but baby kale, spinach, or shredded savoy cabbage will all work wonders here in their place.
