Best Steak Salad

When cooking dinner is just too daunting, I turn to this recipe. Yes, you have to cook the steaks, but that's the only thing that gets cooked. The steaks coated in a flavorful spice mixture, dipped in butter and then seared in a skillet. The dressing and rest of the salad fixings are easily thrown together while the steak cooks.
