- Place beets in a medium pot and fill with water. Cover and cook on high heat until water starts boiling, then reduce to medium-low and simmer until beets are tender, about 30 minutes. Drain water and let beets cool for a few minutes, then peel and slice.
- Meanwhile, prepare indoor or outdoor grill. Season beef with salt and pepper. Grill for 3-6 minutes on each side, or until desired degree of doneness is achieved. Let rest for 5 minutes and then slice into wide strips.
- Portion mixed greens onto two plates, and then top each with half of the steak, beets, and goat cheese. Drizzle balsamic vinegar onto each salad and then season with a dash of salt and freshly ground pepper to taste.
