Place steak on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray; broil 6 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Cover and let rest 5 minutes. Cut steak diagonally across grain into thin slices.
  5. To prepare kale, heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add 1 tablespoon oil and minced garlic; cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Add kale and 1/4 cup water; cover and cook 5 minutes or until tender. Remove from heat; stir in vinegar and remaining ingredients.
