Prepare spice mix and set aside.
Prepare pellet grill according to manufacturer’s instructions. Preheat pellet grill to 225° F.
Prepare steak by rubbing ¼ tsp. olive oil on each side of the steak, then sprinkling 1 ½ Tbsp. of spice mix on each side of steak. Take care not to contaminate your spice mixture with a spoon that has touched raw meat. (Note: If time allows, seal your steak in a plastic zip-top bag with the olive oil and seasonings to marinate for 6-12 hours prior to grilling.)
About an hour in to cooking your steak, preheat oven to 425°F.
Toss diced onion, sweet potato, and eggplant with 1 ½ Tbsp. olive oil and 1 ½ Tbsp. spice mix. Place vegetables on a baking sheet and bake for 45 minutes. Toss veggies halfway through baking, then remove from oven when fork-tender.
While veggies are cooking, prepare salad dressing by mixing together olive oil, red wine vinegar, and remainder of spice mix (about 1 ½ Tbsp).
When the steak is finished cooking, remove from pellet grill, cover lightly with foil and rest 3-5 minutes before slicing. Slice steak against the grain first (perpendicular to the natural “lines”in the meat), then into bite-sized pieces.
Top salad greens with roasted veggies, cheese, tomatoes, and Flank Steak. Toss with salad dressing.
