  • 2 pounds beef round steak (1 inch thick)
  • 1 cup olive oil

  • 1 large bunch romaine
  • 1/2 cup minced fresh parsley


  • Broil steak 6 in. from the heat for 7 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 135°; medium, 140°; medium-well, 145°). Cool slightly. Cut steak into very thin strips.
