Directions:

  1. Sauté or grill steak. To sauté, melt ghee or butter into pan over medium high heat. Add steak to the pan and cook 3-4 minutes per side for medium rare.  To grill, prepare grill and cook steak for 3-4 minutes on each side for medium rare.
  2. Remove steak from pan or grill and let rest while you prepare the rest of the salad.
