Once your barbecue is preheated leave the burners on high.

Step 7
Cook the steaks for 2 minutes per side. Remove from the grill and set aside to rest for a few minutes.

Step 8
Once the steaks have finished resting, slice them into fine strips.

Step 9
Add the steak strips and the dressing that was set aside to the salad. Gently toss together and serve immediately.
