Notes
If you are cooking grass-fed steak, remember to keep it low and slow. Grass-fed beef is leaner than conventionally raised and can quickly become tough without extra love. Also, don't forget the garlic butter. This is a key item to this delicious salad. If you end up with extra garlic butter, serve it in small ramekins for dipping.
