We suggest round or sirloin for this salad because it’s commonly available and usually a good buy, but other lean choices include flank steak and filet mignon.
Ingredients

uncooked lean trimmed sirloin beef

6 oz, top round or boneless, trimmed

black pepper

¼ tsp

table salt

tsp

romaine lettuce

1 head(s), chopped (about 8 cups)

uncooked red onion(s)

½ medium, thinly sliced

fat-free salad dressing

¼ cup(s), Caesar variety

grated Parmesan cheese

¼ cup(s)

Instructions

  1. Heat a nonstick ridged grill pan or cast-iron skillet over high heat. Sprinkle the steak with the pepper and salt. Place the steak on the pan and cook until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the side of the steak registers 145°F for medium-rare, about 4 minutes on each side. Transfer to a cutting board and let stand 5 minutes.
  2. Toss together the remaining ingredients in a large bowl. Divide the salad evenly between 2 plates. Cut the steak into 10 slices and divide evenly between the salads. Yields (3 cups salad and 5 slices steak per serving.
