Steaks may be cooked on a grill, griddle, or may be broiled according to personal taste.
Be sure to let cooked meat rest a few minutes before slicing.
Use extra dressing to drizzle over the vegetables and sliced thin Beef and wrap in the lettuce leaves. Serve as a grazing item of for a main course.
