  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Hold romaine heart at root end and chop coarsely.

    Halve lemon lengthwise. Cut one half into wedges and juice the other half.

    Core tomatoes and cut into 1/2" dice.

    Cut ciabatta into 1" dice.

    Separate steak strips into a single layer and pat dry. Coarsely chop. Season all over with 1/2 tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper.

  2. 2

    Roast the Tomatoes and Croutons

    Place ciabatta on prepared baking sheet and spread into a single layer on one side. Place tomatoes on empty half and spread into a single layer on their half. Top tomatoes with 1 tsp. olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper.

    Bake in hot oven until ciabatta is golden brown and tomatoes release juices, 8-12 minutes.

    Cool baked ciabatta croutons, at least 10 minutes. Once cool, combine ciabatta croutons and pesto in a mixing bowl. Set aside.

    While tomatoes and croutons bake, cook steak strips.

  3. 3

    Cook the Steak Strips

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil.

    Add steak strips to hot pan and stir occasionally until no pink remains and steak strips reach a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 4-6 minutes.

    Remove from burner. Rest, 3 minutes.

    While steak strips cook, make dressing.
