    1 tbsp virgin coconut oil

    Carefully place the steak in the skillet; flipping every 15 to 30 seconds, cook the steak until desired doneness (5 to 7 minutes for medium-rare). (Use a thermometer or cut into the steak to check the doneness.) Once done, transfer the steak to a plate and let it rest for 5 to 10 minutes.

    Slice off a piece from both grapefruit ends, then place it flat on one of the ends and slice off the peel (from top to bottom), exposing the flesh; cut out the segments of flesh from between the membranes, then cut them into 2-cm pieces. Add the pieces (and any leftover juice) to the salad bowl.
