  • Cooking Method: Grilling

Ingredients

  • 1 lb (450g) sirloin steak
  • 1 head romaine lettuce, chopped
  • 1 cup Caesar dressing

Cooking Instructions

  1. Preheat your grill to high heat (about 450°F or 230°C). Feel those muscles tensing?
  2. Season the steak with olive oil, salt, and black pepper on both sides. Give it a little massage. It deserves it.
  3. Grill the steak for about 4-5 minutes on each side for medium-rare. Adjust time if you prefer your steak mooing or still in the shade.

  9. Sprinkle croutons and grated Parmesan cheese over the top. It’s snowing deliciousness.
  10. Serve with lemon wedges on the side. Because every hero needs a sidekick.
