Tips & Suggestions

When cooking the steak, the cooking time will vary based on the size of the cut and your preferred level of doneness. It’s best to use a meat thermometer to ensure the steak reaches the proper temperature.

This recipe is one of my favorites because it combines my love for easy, delicious meals with my desire to eat healthily and enjoyably. Experience the hearty flavor of steak atop a bed of light, crispy salad greens. It’s a filling meal that won’t leave you feeling overstuffed.
