This is actually one of the juiciest most flavorful ways to make a steak.   I like using a skirt steak here because it turns out fall-apart-tender.  I like to make it in my casserole slow cooker just because of the way it fits perfectly, but you could also fold it over and add it to a regular slow cooker as well.

Now, of course, no salad is complete without dressing and I can’t recommend enough that you should make it yourself.  It’s so simple to do in just minutes and tastes so very good.

Here’s how the layers of this salad go:

  • crispiest lettuce you can find
